Although there has been a lot of focus on low-fat diets to lose weight and for health benefits, there are also dangers to not including enough fat in your daily intake of food.

A big risk is vitamin deficiencies. Vitamins A, D, E and K are generally only absorbed by the body in the presence of fat, and all are vitally important for ongoing health. 

A lack of vitamin A can lead to dry skin, night blindness, increased susceptibility to infections, and problems with bone and tooth development. Low levels of vitamin D can cause weak bones, and too little vitamin K can lead to increased bleeding.

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for brain development, and a deficiency of these particular fats can result in learning problems and an increased risk for certain types of dementia.

Any kind of vitamin deficiency is not good for health whether it is vitamin A, C, D. Here I want to emphasize the importance of Vitamin D for women. Vitamin D deficiency is not good for those women who are pregnant and who are willing to get pregnant. Here I share a link to know more on it:
