Are you enjoying that salad a little less now that you've switched to fat free dressing? If you switched to fat free in an effort to improve your health, you may be doing more harm than good.

[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Chicago, IL;]


Harvard researchers followed the eating habits of thousands of women for over a decade. They found the fat free dressings aren't healthier. The healthiest were the oil based versions like Italian and Creamy dressings.
Those contain a healthy fat called linolenic acid that actually clears out the blockages that cause heart attacks.
Harvard researchers say the fat free dressings prevent people from getting that healthy fat.
Of course those regular dressings have more calories, so don't overdo it. But the researchers say you are better off getting that kind of fat.
