what double-blind and repeated studies of this topic point out. I am willing

<< But by going down further, to the
       level of fat and cholesterol characteristic of societies in which
       heart disease is virtually unheard of, I reduced my risk by 97
       percent. Extensive human population studies show the same pattern.
       These societies that eat 30 percent of calories from fat have heart
       disease rates about 30 percent lower than those that eat 40 percent
       of calories from fat. But societies that eat diets characterized by
       whole grains, vegetables, and fruits with, about 10 percent of
       calories coming from fat, have heart disease rates that are at least
       90 percent lower than the societies that eat about 40 percent
       calories from fat. ... The pattern that exists for heart disease
       exists also for the most common cancers. >>
