Protective Fats? 

Research indicates that dietary fats have a protective effect on the GI tract, including inhibition of some inflammatory responses. This has led some researchers to reconsider fasting instructions before surgery, and to think about fats as a potential treatment for irritable bowel diseases.

Don't go chomping burgers all willy-nilly though...there's still all the bad stuff fats can do to you! And none of these hypotheses have really been tested, either.
