Plenty of things in nature are bad for us, take poisonous mushrooms and tobacco for example. I think where a lot of people run into issues with animal fats is
1. General over consumption
2. Over consumption of them in conjunction with refined sugars and carbs
3. Consumption of fat from unhealthy animals
I agree with all of those three points.
Slightly off-topic:One of my problems with the word 'natural' is that it's been misused as a marketing tactic for many years. For example, yoghurt manufacturers have long sold it as a health-promoting food and emphasised its' natural' characteristics. Yet there's no evidence yoghurt has got any special properties, other than tasting nice with fruit.
