Study fails to link saturated fat to heart disease
This is certainly good news for carnivores the world 'round. A recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
(January 13, 2010) is turning the traditional American Heart Association wisdom on it's head. We have heard for years and years that saturated fat intake is closely associated with an increased risk of heart and cardiovascular disease.
The American Heart Association (AHA) suggests that adults get no more than 7 percent of their daily calories from the fat; for someone who eats 2,000 calories a day, that translates into fewer than 16 grams of saturated fat per day.
But in the new analysis, which combined the results of 21 previous studies, researchers found no clear evidence that higher saturated fat intakes led to higher risks of heart disease or stroke.
Fine Living Network will become The Cooking Channel
Scripps Networks Interactive will replace their Fine Living Network with The Cooking Channel. The re-branded channel will reportedly launch in May of this year and will feature a line-up that will attempt to cater to more serious foodies.
The new Cooking Channel will be a 24-hour network that caters to avid food lovers by focusing on food information and instructional cooking programming. Offered in both standard and high definition, the new network will launch with a VOD offering and a fully interactive Internet and broadband platform as it delivers more content focused on baking, ethnic cuisine, wine and spirits, healthy and vegetarian cooking and kids’ foods.
