Say No To Trans Fats!!

By: Joaquin Rameriez


It is common knowledge in 2016 that obesity and type 2 diabetes is an epidemic sweeping through America with recent statistics showing that as many as 1-3 Americans are obese. This is a number that cannot continue to rise, especially because now children are being diagnosed with early onset type 2 diabetes when ten years ago it was only found in adults. It is unfair (to say the least) that children these days are condemned to illness because of poor food choices that which they are not at fault for.

We can help shrink the obesity rates by simply giving up trans fats. Trans fats are usually ARTIFICIAL fats made in processing plants to help keep food solid. These fats are absolutely terrible for you. Trans Fats raise LDL or “bad” cholesterol in the body, which causes heart disease and diabetes especially when ate daily.

Companies use these trans fats because they are relatively cheap and give a taste and texture that Americans crave. Most fast food places use trans fats or partially hydrogenated oils in their fryers because it can be used several times before it needs to be changed out.

If you must fry foods keep coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil around and avoid anything that says hydrogenated oils. Another way to keep track of Trans Fats is to cook more at home and avoid processed or fast foods. Help educate children, friends and family to take caution in what they eat and where it comes from so we can put a stop to this irresponsible epidemic.
