Remove the Saturated Fat Warning

Hi, I noticed that the app sometimes warns about items high in Saturated Fat. I'm wondering why this is, considering science tells us that Saturated and Monounsaturated Fat sources are the healthiest forms of Fat. I think this warning should be removed unless there is a valid reason for it. Thanks

    Saturated fat is one of the unhealthy fats (trans fats being the other). Poly and mono are considered "healthy fats" and there is no limit to these.

    Ployunsaturated and monounsaturated fats are the healthy fats. Saturated fats are still considered something to be limited by health organizations and most cardiologists, etc.
