#82 Nick Hiebert - Seed Oils, Saturated Fat, and Cardiovascular Disease

In this episode of The Muscle Memoirs Podcast, I am joined by Nick Hiebert to discuss how dietary fat relates to cardiovascular health. We cover the science on seed oils, saturated fat, the omega-6/omega-3 ratio, and more. Nick Hiebert is a nutrition science communicator. He is known for creating in-depth educational content, ranging from nutrient density to saturated fat and cardiovascular disease, and has published some independent meta-analyses on his website. He is also the creator of the Nutri-Dex, a novel nutrition ranking tool.
