Trans fats, just like their saturated fat counterparts, are responsible for the increase in risk of heart disease. However, trans fats can cause heart disease to occur much sooner and much faster than the consumption of saturated fats. Hydrogenated vegetable oils contain high trans fat amounts, which reduce the amount of ‘good’ cholesterol in the body. Most of today’s experts recommend consuming those vegetable oils which are naturally occurring and unprocessed. However, they stress that the consumption of these oils alone will not prevent heart disease by themselves. A healthy lifestyle should, they say, include exercise as well as the consumption of other healthy foods.
