Please note the time zone for the webinar is CDT (Chicago, USA).

The science of saturated fats and associated health risks and benefits continues to evolve and is an important factor in the determination of food policy and dietary guidelines. New research is casting doubt on the role of cholesterol (total and LDL) in causing heart disease, while older research is not conclusive and has methodological/data selection concerns. This symposium will illustrate the challenges in getting this right, and what happens when incorrect interpretation makes for incorrect policy. The presentations will discuss the impact of chain length, molecular structure and food matrix on actions of saturated fat in health, particularly cardiovascular health.
