Trans Fats, Not Saturated Fats, Bad for Health
Saturated fats are not as bad for health as scientists once thought. A new study shows the big culprit is trans fats, the hydrogenated oils found in processed foods.
Researchers at McMaster University in Canada analyzed 50 studies involving over 1 million people.
They found that trans fats have no health benefits and instead raise the risk of death by 34 percent in less than a decade.
Research shows that trans fats increase the risk of heart disease.
