What is Trans Fat? Is Trans Fat Bad for You?
Trans fats are banned at last. But they are still in our foods, so beware!
Recently, the FDA issued a ban on all trans fats, deeming them unsafe for human consumption, and it’s about time! For more than 20 years, the science has shown these fake FrankenFats to be hazardous to our health. Thankfully, the government has finally caught on.
Trans fat was invented for use in margarine and shortening. But do you know why they call it shortening? Because it shortens your life! It was supposed to be a better butter, but in fact, it’s worse. Did you know that if you put butter and margarine side by side, flies will land on the butter but they won’t land on the margarine? It’s just too toxic for them. The trans fat it’s made from is an oddly shaped fat that:
– Slows your metabolism
– Causes weight gain
– Increases inflammation
– Lowers your good cholesterol
– Raises your bad cholesterol
– Causes diabetes, obesity, heart attacks, strokes, dementia, cancer, and inflammation.
Trans fats, or trans-unsaturated fatty acids, trans fatty acids, are a type of unsaturated fats that are uncommon in nature but became commonly produced industrially from vegetable fats for use in margarine, snack food, packaged baked goods and frying fast food starting in the 1950s. Trans fat has been shown to consistently be associated, in an intake-dependent way, with risk of coronary heart disease, the worldwide leading cause of death.
