I really enjoyed your presentation on reading food labels and totally agree with most of it. I am still puzzled why do you have to exlude natural unprocessed saturated fats such as tropical oils?

This issue is bugging me. I have been trying to find some scientific studies for many years, specifically about the supposed harmfullness of saturated fats but there doesn't seem to be anything substantial! Yes, there is plenty of papers against hydrogenated fats and inter-estrified fats or non-digestable fat substitutes but virtually nothing against natural saturated fats.

Have you ever thought of the possibility that the saturated fats may have been wrongly accused by the commercial vegetable oil producers to kill their direct competitors: animal and dairy fats together with the imported tropical oils with a single stroke?
