So you are basing your argument based on one documentary... when the evidence against would include:
Medical, heart-health, and governmental authorities, such as the World Health Organization, the American Dietetic Association, the Dietitians of Canada,, the British Dietetic Association, American Heart Association, the British Heart Foundation, the World Heart Federation,, the British National Health Service, the United States Food and Drug Administration,  and the European Food Safety Authority advise that saturated fat is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD).
Numerous systematic reviews have examined the relationship between saturated fat and cardiovascular disease:
Systematic review Relationships between cardiovascular disease and saturated fatty acids (SFA)
Hooper, 2011 Reducing saturated fat in diets reduced the risk of having a cardiovascular event by 14 percent (no reduction in mortality).
Mozaffarian, 2010 These findings provide evidence that consuming polyunsaturated fats(PUFA) in place of SFA reduces Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) events in RCTs. Replacing saturated fats with PUFAs as percentage of calories strongly reduced CHD mortality
Siri-Tarino, 2010 5âEU"23 years of follow-up of 347,747 subjects, 11,006 developed CHD or stroke. A meta-analysis of prospective epidemiologic studies showed that there is no significant evidence for concluding that dietary saturated fat is associated with an increased risk of CHD or CVD.
Danaei, 2009 Low PUFA intake has an 1-5% Increased risk of ischemic heart disease: Low dietary PUFA (in replacement of SFA). age 30âEU"44 Increase in RR 1.05.
Mente, 2009 Single-nutrient RCTs have yet to evaluate whether reducing saturated fatty acid intake lowers the risk of CHD events. For polyunsaturated fatty acid intake, most of the RCTs have not been adequately powered and did not find a significant reduction in CHD outcomes.
Skeaff, 2009 Intake of SFA was not significantly associated with CHD mortality, with a RR of 1.14. Moreover, there was no significant association with CHD death. Intake of PUFA was strongly significantly associated with CHD mortality, with a RR of 1.25. The Health Professionals Follow-up Study and the EUROASPIRE study results mirrored those of total PUFA; intake of linoleic acid was significantly associated with CHD mortality.
Jakobsen, 2009 No overall association between saturated fat and coronary heart disease was found. Polyunsaturated fat was inversely associated with coronary heart disease among women and men, although not significantly. In conclusion, the present study suggests that coronary heart disease risk relates to both the quantity and the quality of dietary fats.
"The associations suggest that replacing saturated fatty acids with polyunsaturated fatty acids rather than monounsaturated fatty acids or carbohydrates prevents CHD over a wide range of intakes."
Van Horn, 2008 25-35% fats but <7% SFA and TFA reduces risk
Chanu, 2003 significant in longer term
Hooper, 2001 Despite decades of effort and many thousands of people randomised, there is still only limited and inconclusive evidence of the effects of modification of total, saturated, monounsaturated, or polyunsaturated fats on cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
Study conclusion: "There is a small but potentially important reduction in cardiovascular risk with reduction or modification of dietary fat intake, seen particularly in trials of longer duration."
Hu, 1999 Based on the data from the NursesâEUTM Health Study, we estimated that substitution of the fat from 1 ounce of nuts for equivalent energy from carbohydrate in an average diet was associated with a 30% reduction in CHD risk and the substitution of nut fat for saturated fat was associated with 45% reduction in risk.
Truswell, 1994 decrease SFA and cholesterol intake, partial replacement with PUFA: 6% reduced deaths, 13% reduced events
Really the overwhelming evidence says that saturated fat is NOT good for you, and certainly not in the levels found in fast food. Some people are genetically able to tolerate saturated fat better than others (eskimos are an excellent example), but in all cases they have lifestyles that require fast metabolisms to stay alive (such as the Arctic), but for the average person lots of saturated fat is a shortcut to a heart attack. All of the above articles agree with this.
