The survival rate of hypertensive rats whose diet included butter, lard, perilla oil/lard, margarine, or partially hydrogenated soybean oil.

Demonstrates a benefit of animal fats and animal/seed blends over common forms of processed vegetable fats (though doesn't include coconut oil, etc.).

@pbanks recomended podcast about meat, fat, cholestorol myths, and issues that cames from refined carbs, "vegetable" oils (industrial seed oils) and even agriculture (topsoil erosion, etc):

@pbanks so, in the course of nature, soyboys will just die out and meat eaters will thrive. that's good to know. this cat approves.

@sotneStatue 12 in each group, so 60 in total, which is a fair number for animal studies.

@pbanks I ate a large chunk of pork fat today, I hope that's ok
