The Bible and Fat Intake

The American Heart Association says: "The major kinds of fat in the foods we eat are saturated, polyunsaturated, monounsaturated, and trans fatty acids. Saturated fats, trans fats and dietary cholesterol raise blood cholesterol. A high level of cholesterol in the blood is a major risk factor for coronary heart disease, which leads to heart attack.

In reference to prostrate cancer, a study by the University of Pennsylvania Cancer Center stated, "The fourth most common cause of cancer among men may be related to saturated fat consumption."

Saturated fats come from animals. In Leviticus 7:22-24 we are told, "And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, You shall eat no manner of fat, or ox, or of sheep, or of goat."
