Diets high in unsaturated or saturated fatty acids can have adverse effects on certain health parameters, namely increased risk of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Long standing dietary advice, however, has dictated that a diet higher in unsaturated fatty acids is associated with decreased health risks. The data acquired suggests that diets high in unsaturated fatty acids result in more obese and diabetic phenotypes, while high-saturated fatty acid consumption results in a phenotype with increased cardiovascular disease risk.
