Animal fat is what makes meat taste good. Why do you think they wrap lean cuts of meat such as filet mignon with bacon, or serve it with garlic butter?

Humans need a certain amount of fat. Babies and children need a lot more than adults— it is crucial for brain development. The reason so many from sh*t-hole countries are dull witted at best is that they didnt have any fat in their impoverished diets when they were growing and developing.

We need fats for health in our diet b/c some nutrients in foods are only usable dissolved in fats.
