    Born in a laboratory, these scary fats will destroy your health

    Trans fat was born in a laboratory. It made foods live forever. It’s why you can make a flaky pie crust from shortening that’s been sitting on a shelf for 30 years. Learn why this FrankenFat can wreck your health. Then discover which foods still harbor the dangerous fat.

    Ironic the CSPI (like PCRM a front for PETA) originally championed trans fats "because they weren't made from animals" then after a few decades of disaster they acted to have them banned.

    Never fear though, Food Scientists have come up with another winner, interesterified fats. Wonder how long it will take for their health impact to become understood.

    compare and contrast: take an olive, or a coconut, or the nether regions of a cow, and squeeze . . .
