While I agree with Dr. Harris that it's sensible to avoid consuming excessive amounts of linoleic acid it is still an essential fatty acid and must therefore be provided by your diet. That is not the case with saturated fats for which there is no dietary requirement as they can be synthesised endogenously to meet demand.
