Natural trans fats are GOOD for you

The Nanny State nonsense over fats just won't stop -- with taxes, restrictions, and even flat-out bans making headlines nearly every week.

Pretty soon, cooks will need a haz-mat license just to handle a tub of butter!

But if you want to see how meaningless all those rules are regulations are, just take a look at the latest news on trans fats: Women who were put on a diet high in trans fats from butter suffered absolutely no ill effects by any mainstream measure.

Their LDL cholesterol didn't shoot up... their triglycerides didn't skyrocket... and their HDL levels remained largely the same -- although in fat women, they dropped a tad.

(Side note: These are mainstream measures -- not mine... to learn how to get the REAL story on cholesterol and why your levels are almost certainly too LOW, read

Surprised? If you've been keeping up with the Nanny State on this, it's downright shocking... but it's right in line with what I've said all along: Trans fats from meat and dairy are perfectly healthy.

The only trans fats you need to worry about -- the ones that really will cause obesity, heart disease, dementia and more regardless of your cholesterol levels -- are the artificial trans fats that come from vegetable oils.

Now, even the mainstream is starting to realize they botched this one big-time -- but get this: They STILL won't suggest you actually eat any meat... and STILL urge you to stick to a plant-based diet.

By that logic, you should keep eating the "healthy" sources of unhealthy trans fats... and avoid the "unhealthy" sources of the healthy trans fats.

It's enough to make your head spin!

Forget this nonsensical game of opposites, because figuring out which fats are fit for your dinner plate couldn't be easier: The ones from meats and dairy are A-OK... and with few exceptions, the ones that come from plants are positively deadly.

Fighting for your fats,
