Sally Fallon Morell is an accomplished writer, nutrition and holistic health expert, and the author of the new book, Nourishing Fats. In the book, Sally details why we need animal fats in our diet and the critical role that they play in our health.
Sally described the difference between various types of fat, noting that saturated fats tend to be solid at room temperature, while unsaturated fats tend to be liquid. She explains that saturated fats are not bad, contrary to popular belief.
Trans fats and liquid polyunsaturated fats, however, should be avoided. Trans fats are dangerous because they are man-made and the body has a hard time getting rid of them. They also inhibit reactions in the body such as with enzymes and other hormone reactions.
There are critical vitamins and nutrients in animal fats that our bodies need to function properly. Some these include Vitamins A, D, K, and E. For example, Vitamin K protects from heart disease and puts calcium in our bones.
Sally recommends several foods as great sources of these healthy, natural fats. These include egg yolks, lard, bacon fat, fish, shellfish, organ meat, bone marrow, and cod liver oil.
She also explains that the cholesterol we eat has no bearing on whether we get disease. There is no need to fear foods with high cholesterol. The body can make cholesterol, but is spared from doing so when we consume cholesterol in our food. Babies and children also need cholesterol for the development of their bodies, yet they cannot produce it, so they in fact should not be on low cholesterol diets.
