SIDNEY DIET HEART STUDY: ---8 year long randomized controlled trial in humans in 1967

Conclusions Advice to substitute polyunsaturated fats for saturated fats is a key component of worldwide dietary guidelines for coronary heart disease risk reduction. However, clinical benefits of the most abundant polyunsaturated fatty acid, omega 6 linoleic acid, have not been established. In this cohort, substituting dietary linoleic acid in place of saturated fats increased the rates of death from all causes, coronary heart disease, and cardiovascular disease. An updated meta-analysis of linoleic acid intervention trials showed no evidence of cardiovascular benefit. These findings could have important implications for worldwide dietary advice to substitute omega 6 linoleic acid, or polyunsaturated fats in general, for saturated fats.

MINNESOTA CORONARY EXPERIMENT: ---5 year long randomized controlled trial in humans in 1969

Available evidence from randomized controlled trials shows that replacement of saturated fat in the diet with linoleic acid effectively lowers serum cholesterol but does not support the hypothesis that this translates to a lower risk of death from coronary heart disease or all causes. Findings from the Minnesota Coronary Experiment add to growing evidence that incomplete publication has contributed to overestimation of the benefits of replacing saturated fat with vegetable oils rich in linoleic acid.

CORN OIL IN TREATMENT OF ISCHEMIC HEART DISEASE: ---2 year long randomized controlled trial in humans in 1965


Disclaimer: I have not read the complete studies of the above three, only the abstract. Do your own due diligence.

Old studies are being revisited and analyzed with meta analysis. While the vegetable oils DO lower cholesterol compared to saturated fat, the outcomes are worse. A fact somehow omitted from the original studies. Hmmmm.

Ancel Keys diet heart hypothesis needs to die and go away.
