why does CW say you can reduce visceral fat with poly and not saturated fat?

Studies by CW researchers say saturated fat is associated with higher levels of visceral fat, compared with polyunsaturated fat. Could this be explained by the donut theory, that SAD eaters get saturated fat from diets high in sugar and carbs?

It's driven by monies - they push industrial seed oils, GMO soy, GMO corn, and other grains because that's who pays the bills.

Associated with? I'm not sure which CW studies/reports you refer to, but a correlate is not a cause.

If conscientious people - the kind who also exercise, stop smoking, skip dessert etc - follow CW itself, as most do, then the sample of those who favor polyunsaturated fat is not at all the same group as those who favor saturated. The former's set of good habits, a product of that same conscientiousness, can produce an overall improvement in spite of - not because of - their fat choices.
