Eating fat is bad for my health.
You have to eat fat to be healthy. It provides essential fatty acids that our bodies can’t produce. It also helps to deliver and absorb the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K and protects vital organs. Omega-3 fats, found in salmon, mackerel and canola oil, decreases blood clotting, which helps reduce the risk of heart disease.
