Antonio Moura Santos – Artificial Trans Fats
Artificial Trans Fats Are Very Unhealthy and Should be Avoided
Trans fats are also known as partially hydrogenated oils.
They are made by mixing unsaturated fats with hydrogen gas at a high heat to make them resemble saturated fats.
This process is very disgusting and it amazes me to think that someone thought these fats would be suitable for human consumption.
Trans fats raise the bad cholesterol and lower the good cholesterol, cause abdominal obesity, inflammation and insulin resistance.
In the long term, consumption of trans fats raises the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, depression and many more diseases.
I recommend you avoid trans fats as if your life depended on it.
Bottom Line: Trans Fats are chemically processed fats that cause all sorts of damage in the body. You should avoid them like the plague.
