This Trans Fat May Not Be Cholesterol Villain

Trans fats are regarded as one of the least healthy compounds found in food as they are thought to raise “bad” LDL cholesterol and drop “good” HDL cholesterol.

However, a new study of 61 women found that eating large quantities of the natural form of trans fat didn’t negatively impact cholesterol. Most trans fat in the diet comes from man-made hydrogenated vegetable oils.

The study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, notes that naturally occurring trans fats, from eggs and poultry skin, may be benign.

Notice however that many studies have shown that women can take and even benefit from higher level of cholesterol than men.
