Trans fats are so bad for you that the Food and Drug Administration is considering banning them from the American food supply. Also know as trans fatty acids, they raise your LDL "bad" cholesterol and lower your HDL "good" cholesterol, a dangerous combination that greatly increases your risk of blocked arteries, heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. Trans fats are found in many processed foods and store-bought baked goods. Look on the label for "partially hydrogenated" vegetable oils, and just walk away.
