unsaturated or saturated fats

There has been a recent trial looking at the presumed benefit of polyunsaturated fat versus saturated fats (like butter). The trial suggests that there is no benefit from polyunsaturated fats like olive oil. Don't panic. I think the basic message is still the same. Portion discipline and regular exercise still apply. Moderation is the key. Simply follow the same old advice such as fruit and veg regularly, If you do decide to go back to butter as opposed to margarine with polyunsaturated fat, just remember moderation is the key.
