Saturated fat warning

10th February 2009

A new campaign by the Food Standards Agency has been launched with the aim of getting people in the UK to cut down their saturated fat intake. 

Eating too much saturated fat can cause the arteries to clog up and heightens the danger of heart disease. The FSA's chief executive Tim Smith said: "People say they do know that saturated fat is bad for them but they don't necessarily link it to heart disease and what they are eating. It's important they make that connection, because heart disease is the UK's number one killer - one in three of us will die as a result."
