Fats: Myths & Truths | Nutrition & Health: The Fundamentals. Hosted by Susan Skillins, CNP, ROHP
Fats are our friends! We have become a fat phobic society, where people avoid it as much as possible. But we need fat in our diet for many health reasons including cognitive function, heart health, energy and weight loss.
This public talk looks to derail some of the myths on fats and discuss in detail how important fats actually are for optimal health. One of the common myths that will be debunked and examined is why saturated fats are actually good for our bodies—despite what we are told—because they stabilize cell membranes and are not susceptible to damage.
