Mice not supposed to eat or take most of substances given to them for human researches. the only reason for chosen them is almost no body like then so no rights to be protected! What is the basement for such researches, simple logic requires making ratio with all living species!

...because the fat was paired with starch? The fat was not used as a fuel source in the presence of glucose; the glucose was used and the fat was stored. This directly contradicts the headline that the fat may be to blame. Very misleading. This article is likely click bait or designed to just have the headline show as a top search result, further propagating the myth that saturated fat is bad for you.

The study was only for *obese* specimens (mice) ?? The specific finding here was "increases risk of fatty liver disease *in obese mice*. What about "normal" weights: for those of us not otherwise at risk for fatty liver disease or TII diabetes - would this push normal folks closer to danger? Until I see a study otherwise I'll continue to enjoy the couple of avocados daily.

This goes against EVERYTHING that most everyone says about avocados, olive oil etc.... so I am VERY confused. How can this be soooo contrary to everything else that is out there. Someone help.
