Saturated fat, natural versus artificial

I noticed the latest June 30 Netscape repeating the myth as if it were fact that saturated dietary fat clogs your arteries. Yes, the saturated trans fats can, but natural organic animal fats that humans have eaten for millennia wouldn’t. Why don’t the researchers concentrate on the insecticides, hormones, and antibiotics that are now contained in animal fat and meat? Saturated fats found in arteries probably do not come from dietary fat.  The liver makes saturated fats from excess sugars in the diet.
