A major global study claims low-fat diet could raise the risk of premature death. The study suggests that lower consumption of fat is linked with a higher risk of death compared with higher intakes - which amounts to 35 percent of energy. Moreover, higher amounts of carbohydrates (of more than 60 percent of energy) consumed can be a threat to your life.
The researchers noted that dietary fats are not associated with major cardiovascular disease, but higher fat consumption was associated with lower mortality. This was seen for all major types of fats-saturated, polyunsaturated, and mono unsaturated. Saturated fats were associated with lower stroke risk, contradicting Britain's National Health Service's statement that eating a lot of saturated fat can increase the levels of cholesterol in your blood.
Diets which include moderate intake of fat and fruits and vegetables, and avoidance of high carbohydrates could lower risk of death, the scientists concluded.
