If you are among those thousands who consume plenty of cream and butter, you are not at risk to die early from type 2 diabetes, heart attack , or stroke; this is according to a new finding carried out by researches from Canada, published in BMJ (British Medical Journal).


According to the researchers, they found no direct link to connect between consuming fatty foods and early deaths from cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, or any other serious ailments as previously thought, but trans-fats such as margarine was found to be connected to serious diseases.


According to a statement given out by Dr. Russell De Souza, McMaster University, Ontario, Canada, though the finding show no relation between fatty foods and early deaths, it is not a thumbs-up for everyone to go ahead and gorge on dairy foods, fatty meats, ice creams, or any other food stuffs that are high in saturated fats.
