One comment which is not in keeping with the straightforward conclusion: myristic acid is good for you...
1/ association is weak
2/ overall it is myristic and other FA in their mammary synthesized matrix which lower the MetS score
3/ nothing in the study could back that pure myristic acid or myristic acid in other matrix would have led to the same result
Despite those restrictions this study is another evidence that low fat is a stupid idea because low fat is man made and nutrition is about real food !
