Trans-fat food Edit

«Trans fat, also called unsaturated fatty acids or trans fatty acids, is a type of unsaturated fat that occurs in small amounts in nature,[1] but became widely produced industrially from vegetable fat starting in the 1950s for use in margarine, snack food, packaged baked goods, and for frying fast food.[2][3] Trans fat has been shown to be associated consistently, in an intake-dependent way, with increased risk of coronary artery disease, a leading cause of death in Western nations.[4]
