For calcium to be effectively incorporated into bones, fat is needed, as the vital bone-building vitamins like A, D, E and K are fat-soluble, and they are dependent on fat to get absorbed and then transported within one’s body.
For your lungs to work correctly, the air spaces need to be covered with a layer of lung surfactants, and this is 100% saturated fatty acid. When you do not consume these healthy fats, it could lead to breathing problems.
