Trans Fats

Most of our manufactured foods contain an ingredient so dangerous that the Food and Drug Administration requires it to be identified on food labels.


Partially hydrogenated vegetable oil has gone from being the fat source for vegetable shortening and margarine to becoming the major food-manufacturing fat in the United States. Today, medical experts have learned that the trans fats contained in partially hydrogenated vegetable oils can lead to heart disease, obesity, and type-2 diabetes. With this groundbreaking book, now you can find out everything there is to know about trans fats—and protect your health. Acclaimed author Judith Shaw, M.A. (Raising Low-Fat Kids in a High-Fat World), tells the truth about trans fats and offers simple suggestions on how to

· Detect the presence of trans fats in processed foods
· Read—and understand—nutrition labels
· Shop for, and cook, trans fat-free foods for the whole family
· Rid your diet of trans fats—at home, in restaurants, and in take-out

…and more, in this much-needed, up-to-the-minute resource.
