This meta-analysis is helpful.
First and overall it deals with lipid profile as a risk factor of atheroma. It is not an epidemiologic study or a meta-analysis of epidemiological studies about CVD and PO consumption. Epidemiologic study of saturated fat consumption and CVD especially CVD mortality of myocardial infarction and stroke did not show any significant correlation.
If we study lipid profile this meta-analysis is helpful.
Saturated fats and especially palmitic acid increase LDL cholesterol and moderately HDL cholesterol.
If you consume a lot of palm oil especially refined you should mix with olive oil or another oil less rich in palmitic and/or other saturated fatty acids.
If your consumption is low you can enjoy the taste and texture of cooking with palm oil especially red palm oil.
You should another time be advised to avoid trans fats which are easily replaced by palm or coconut oils.
