Industrial trans-fatty acid intake and the risk of coronary heart disease

Jessica Laurens

Trans-fatty acids (TFAs) are unsaturated fatty acids containing at least one non-conjugated double bond in the trans-configuration; they are classified as natural or artificial depending on their origin. Industrially manufactured transfats (iTFAs) are made by hydrogenating vegetable oils artificially, resulting in Partly Hydrogenated Vegetable Oils (PHVOs). A growing body of epidemiologic and biochemical research shows that iTFAs have a negative impact on the human body. A worldwide rise in the risk of coronary heart disease due to various cardiovascular risk factors (CHD). To raise awareness of the prevalence and risks associated with dietary consumption of industrial Trans fatty acids (iTFAs), which increase the ratio of low density lipoproteins (LDL) cholesterol to high density lipoproteins (HDL) cholesterol, as well as a variety of other health issues
