Mono-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) have been pushed by dieticians for cardiovascular benefits as well as weight loss. The conventional approach is to replace saturated fatty acids (SAFA) with MUFA in the diet. Since modern paleos are presumably not as SAFA-phobic as the general public, is this a good idea for us? Kamal has previously asked a SAFA vs. MUFA question, but he did not get much response regarding the MUFA side of the equation.
I'm particularly interested in the potential benefits and harms of MUFA. Should we be eating more MUFA, less, or does it matter?
