    revival aka renaissance use in the sentence

    Hello, I would like to write a sentence about how saturated fat has been revived, but I would like to use the word renaissance. I am not sure what is the correct form of saying it.
    For example: "Based on the recent review of xxx, the saturated fat has seen its renaissance and it has become celebrated by many who simply could not give up their beloved animal products." - meaning that it has become popular again and not a scary stuff anymore. Would it be OK like that or is there another form of saying it correctly?

    Perhaps "it's experienced a renaissance"?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Has it though? Just the other day I was reading how some health body in the US was advising that about 80% of people should be on statins (albeit a lowerer of cholesterol, but over-eating saturated fat doesn't help).
    Language point: perhaps "renaissance" is too strong a word? Is this really happening in Europe?

    If it is, it hasn't impinged on my consciousness yet.

    Re: revival aka renaissance use in the sentence

    Hi, to answer the factual content of tie dietary trends: what people are discussing in the media and following in their lives is completely different to what 'some health body in the USA' advocates, being influenced by pharmaco-lobby and food industry lobby. The Paleo, low-carb and similar approaches are focusing on animal products and with them the saturated fat comes along. Health bodies and government policies are always behind the new research, needing to accummulate a lot of evidence and even then it is not 100% sure that the evidence has not been distorted by those who funded the research and interfered with good intentions of the few in the government. I am not saying that too much of sat fat is good, I am saying what is the non-official mainstream fashion right now and it is being talked about a lot, being even promoted by health professionals. Since I understand the biochemistry, I give them credits in some aspects of this, but I do not completely agree.

    Nonetheless, I still need to know what would be the best way of saying that saturated fat and low-carbohydrate approach has become fashionable and it is gaining more and more supporters, adding their own positive experience following this dietary pattern.

    "Comeback" is good, but I don't think it ever went away.

    I am not a teacher.

    Why not, "in vogue"?
