I see what you're saying now...it happens by default, or as a consequence.
You just have to look at the significance level & the time frame. Lyle writes good stuff. I haven't read that book, but until recently I haven't read his blog very much. Just keep in mind that he's trying to get a point across. Just because something has a significance level doesn't mean it's significant.
I'm not saying it's not, but that there are many other much more important processes going on IMHO. I don't think we're in disagreement.
I don't have anything bookmarked regarding saturated fat. You'll have to google it and wade through the BS to find much.
