A new study, led by Canadian researchers, has found that individuals should consume more fat and fewer carbohydrates. Their research concluded that individuals who consume large amounts of carbohydrates would especially benefit in increased fat consumption. Scientists used questionnaires of 135,335 people in 18 countries, with the study spanning 7 years. Researchers found no indication that increased fat consumption led to heart disease or stroke. However, the researchers discovered that who consumed more carbohydrates were more likely to die. One limitation of the study was that researchers did not investigate trans fat consumption.
