Health Tip of the day – What is trans fat?

Hydrogenated fats (trans fats) are unhealthy because they have been chemically restructured to prevent breakdown and spoilage. While this process is good for the food industry and the shelf life of foods, the body can’t break trans fats down either. The result is excess unnatural fats floating in the bloodstream clogging arteries and damaging blood vessel linings. Eliminate trans fats for a healthy cardiovascular system.
