Summarize the scientific evidence relating saturated fat to the risk of heart disease.
Relate the effects of different dietary sources of saturated fat on cardiovascular health.
Review the evidence suggesting that dairy products (including those containing saturated fat) do not increase cardiovascular risk and may have positive effects on key risk factors (e.g., hypertension, type 2 diabetes, obesity).
Describe how replacing saturated fat with carbohydrates and unsaturated fats (monounsaturated fatty acids [MUFAs] and polyunsaturated fatty acids [PUFAs]) impacts cardiovascular health.
