Dr. Joe on Trans Fats…. Bad Idea !

Harvard School of Public Health published a piece in December, 2007 as to why Trans Fats should be banished from the Food system. They intrinsically lead to harmful changes in blood fats, systemic inflammation, and abdominal fat (brown fat) and insulin resistance.This leads to cardiovascular death, diabetes and other chronic disease.There is no reason for the continued use of Trans Fat in food preparation and suggest voluntary or legislated withdrawal. Tens of thousand of heart attacks would be prevented.
