Monday Dec 8, 2008 ( -- People eating mono-unsaturated fat found in Mediterranean diet are less likely to be obese or overweight than those consuming saturated fats from butter, cream and meat, as well as trans fats found in hydrogenated oils, according to a new study.

The study led by researchers from the University of Montreal showed that rates of obesity in countries such as France, Denmark and Italy where high amounts of mono-unsaturated fats are commonly used were low.

The study based on data from the United Nations World Health Organization also showed that that the obesity rates were high in countries such as Saudia Aradbia, Egypt and Peru where less mono-unsaturated fat was consumed.

In Canada where women used daily 147 grams of fat with 59 grams from mono-unsaturated fat, the obesity rate was 22.2 percent among women aged 15 and older.

In the US where women used 152.2 grams of fat each day of which 45.9 grams were mono-unsaturated fat, 37.8 percent of women were obese.
