Check out this great article on saturated fat consumption vs. CHD risk, as well as total cholesterol vs. CHD risk.
I looked up a bunch of the countries' different cuisines as well as their alcohol consumption and I think spirits like vodka are largely responsible as Russia seems to top the charts. On the contrary, France ranks in at number one with a huge amount of alcohol consumption coming from wine. Australia wasn't bad either and they tend to drink the beer. Mexico seemed to be low as well even with the consumption of spirits, I suppose this is tequila that's natural. Very interesting nonetheless and I condone the use of dietary saturated fats as they are our bodies' preferred source of energy. Check it out.
