Saturated Fat And Telomeres Shortening



I found this article that shows the link between saturated fat and shortening of telomeres thus increased aging.


So my question is does saturated fat like butter increase aging?


Thank you

    It was a study based on 50-70-year-olds who responded to a questionnaire.


    Just from a statistical standpoint, the data is sketchy at best.

    What could possibly be wrong with gathering data through subjective questionnaires?

    Thanks to the internet, health experts, and my unending curiosity, I have overcome: excessive sweating (adrenal fatigue), anxiety and panic attacks, extremely high estrogen levels (man boobs), chronic brain fog (yeast overgrowth), depression, and am currently battling SIBO (took it from being so bloated it felt like my stomach skin was going to rip, slept 2 hours per night for a week because of upset stomach and being chronically fatigued to very mild, manageable but still annoying symptoms) and currently battling sleep deprivation/insomnia probably due to the SIBO/Leaky Gut and resulting histamine intolerance.

    It doesn't get easier... It's you who gets better.

    Success has a price, not a secret.

  • This also does not consider the carb to fat ratio per meal.... Given that when two fuel sourses enter the body carbs will dominate and fat will get stored... I'd love to see a telomere study done on someone getting keto
