From my reading everything is actually the opposite.

Here is an article that provides a different view.

The Skinny on Fats - Weston A Price Foundation

I do not wish to push my views, only share them. Here is the opening to the article.

Quote:
Fats from animal and vegetable sources provide a concentrated source of energy in the diet; they also provide the building blocks for cell membranes and a variety of hormones and hormonelike substances. Fats as part of a meal slow down absorption so that we can go longer without feeling hungry. In addition, they act as carriers for important fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. Dietary fats are needed for the conversion of carotene to vitamin A, for mineral absorption and for a host of other processes.

Politically Correct Nutrition is based on the assumption that we should reduce our intake of fats, particularly saturated fats from animal sources. Fats from animal sources also contain cholesterol, presented as the twin villain of the civilized diet.
Check out our Paleo forum section for some more great information, along with the documentary "Fat Head" which is free on You Tube and Netflix.

Here is a non-related video.
