Saturated fats

The types of fats you consume can have a major impact on your health. According to various studies, saturated fats trigger a host of inflammatory responses such as swelling, pain, and loss of function. If inflammation becomes chronic, it can lead to various diseases including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or and cancer.

The Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2015-2020 recommends limiting saturated fat intake to less than 10% of the total daily calories. But most Americans exceed this level, consuming, on average, 11-12% of their daily calories from saturated fat. According to the National Cancer Institute, pizza and cheese are the biggest sources of saturated fat in the United States, followed by burgers and sweet things.
