Trans Fats Will Clog Your Heart

Trans fats are far and away the worst
fats that you can consume.

The Hidden Killer Fat
These "killer" fats are formed by pumping hydrogen into an oil to make it solid and increase the shelf life. This process changes the molecular structure and turns a perfectly good oil into a toxic product. Any oil heated to a high temperature for deep frying (as in French fries) is loaded with trans fat—even if it is a vegetable oil.

Whenever you see “partially hydrogenated oil” on the label you know it has trans fats and should not be included in nutrition for life. This includes most packaged foods and margarines, including those that say "cholesterol free". A very clever advertising trick.

Udo says that these artificial fats impair the protective barrier around cells, which is vital for keeping cells alive and healthy. Allergic reactions may result and immune function may be impaired.

In the ongoing Nurses Health Study each 2% increase in trans fat consumption converted to a whopping 93% increase in coronary heart disease.

A study published in The Lancet in 1994 showed that almost three-quarters of the fat found clogging arteries is trans fat,

Trans fats are not well understood by the general public. No wonder. They’re not even listed on the FDA “nutrition” labels. You have to be a detective to search out the hidden trans fats. 

Trans Fat Tip 
If the sum of the fats listed on the label does not add up to the “total fats” the missing fats are trans fats. Example:

Total Fats        15 grams

Saturated Fat         6 grams

Monounsaturated  4 grams

Polyunsaturated    2 grams

Adds up to 12

The missing 3 grams are trans fats. (Sneaky huh?)
