Despite much evidence to the contrary
, most people still believe that high-fat foods are bad for you. In fact, foods high in healthy fats (in moderation of course) can be an important part of a healthy diet. Some even offer some surprising health benefits, including enhanced immunity to illness, more energy, better brain function, and even better weight management!
A recent study conducted at the University of Georgia found several health benefits associated with healthy high-fat foods. The team analyzed several previous studies that focused on the health benefits related to consuming different foods high in healthy fats.
The 5 foods listed below are some examples they found of high-fat foods that may be consumed in reasonable amounts on a regular basis to help you maintain good health.
Diabetes kills thousands of people every year, and the rate of adult onset diabetes (type II) has skyrocketed in recent decades, despite the mainstream assumption that cutting fats out of our diet reduces the risk of diabetes and other weight-related modern diseases, and the resulting widespread reduction in consumption of most kinds of fat. (By the way, this theory has been debunked hundreds of times - check out some of our previous posts on this topic here

Few health debates have raged more fiercely in the past several years than the vaccine debate. Even well-known celebrities
and late-night talk show hosts
have debated the topic on both sides - and with good reason.
While the mainstream medical establishment asserts unequivocally that vaccines are completely safe, and every child should be fully vaccinated, a growing number of concerned parents and natural health experts have warned against various health issues that may be caused or worsened by vaccines - particularly the rise in the incidence of autism. There are literally thousands of anecdotal stories of children showing autistic symptoms immediately after receiving a battery of vaccines - though medical science denies these claims. Other citizens simply don't wish to feel forced by the government or medical establishment to medicate their children.
Whatever the reason is, there are a growing number of parents choosing not to vaccinate their children - and some health officials are becoming concerned about the potential risks to public health, such as the resurgence of diseases that have been mostly eradicated by widespread vaccination, including polio and others.
The interesting video below explores both sides of this debate in detail, and sheds light on the pros and cons of vaccinations.
