Various margarines containing trans-fatty acids were marketed as being healthier because of the absence of cholesterol, suggesting to use margarine instead of butter. Fifteen years ago, research documented the grave health risk of trans-fats (T-fat). US FDA in 2015 finalized its decision that T-fat is not safe and set a three-year time limit for complete removal of T-fat from all foods. The greatest danger from T-fat lies in its capacity to distort the cell membranes. The primary health risk…

Trans-Fatty Acids and Cardiovascular Disease: Urgent Need for Legislation

TLDR
Legal TFA limits should be commonly established as they are the optimal solution considering both CVD prevention and the associated cost savings in public healthcare.

Mechanisms of Action of trans Fatty Acids

TLDR
In vivo and in vitro studies demonstrate that industrial trans fatty acids promote inflammation and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress, although to a lesser degree than SFAs, whereas cis-unsaturated fatty acids are protective against ER stress and inflammation.

Effects of trans-Fatty Acid on Lipoproteins-a, Oxidative Status and Expression of Leptin and Leptin Receptor Genes in Albino Rats

TLDR
It could be concluded that TFAs induce combined increased body weight, with imbalance in oxidative stress, dyslipidemia, and elevated atherogenic Lipoprotein-a may be leading to development of atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease.

TLDR
Pretreatment with TFAs strongly promoted apoptosis induced by either extracellular ATP, one of the damage-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs) leaked from damaged cells, or DNA damaging-agents, including doxorubicin and cisplatin, thorough enhancing activation of the stress-responsive mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase p38/c-jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) pathways.

Probing the regulation of cellular lipid metabolism by trans fatty acids and the lipid-sensitive ANGPTL4 protein

TLDR
Insight is provided into the molecular mechanisms of trans fatty acids and the prospect of harnessing the therapeutic potential of ANGPTL4 inactivation for correcting cardiometabolic abnormalities is highlighted.

Nutrigenomics of Dietary Lipids

TLDR
The main goal is to provide an overview about the interaction between dietary lipids and the genome, by identifying and discussing recent scientific evidence, recognizing strengths and weaknesses, to address future investigations and fill the gaps in the current knowledge on metabolic impact of dietary fats on health.

Depot-specific inflammation with decreased expression of ATM2 in white adipose tissues induced by high-margarine/lard intake

TLDR
Results suggest that depot-specific inflammation with decreased expression of adipose tissue anti-inflammatory M2-type (ATM2) macrophages could be induced by high-margarine/lard intake.

Content of industrially produced trans fatty acids in breast milk: An observational study

Abstract Breast milk may contain industrially produced trans fatty acids (TFAs), which can affect the content of essential fatty acids (EFAs). This could have significant implications for the child's

Trans-fatty acids, dangerous bonds for health? A background review paper of their use, consumption, health implications and regulation in France

TLDR
An overview about TFAs origins, their use and consumption among French population, their potential human health implications as well as the preventive and regulatory measures undertaken in France are provided.

Effect of different forms of dietary hydrogenated fats on LDL particle size.

TLDR
Crash in LDL particle size is associated with a deleterious increase in small, dense LDL, which further reinforces the importance of promoting diets low in trans FAs to favorably affect the lipoprotein profile.

Health effects of trans-fatty acids: experimental and observational evidence

TLDR
Controlled trials and observational studies provide concordant evidence that consumption of TFA from partially hydrogenated oils adversely affects multiple cardiovascular risk factors and contributes significantly to increased risk of CHD events.

Dietary Fat Intake and the Risk of Depression: The SUN Project

TLDR
A detrimental relationship was found between TFA intake and depression risk, whereas weak inverse associations were found for MUFA, PUFA and olive oil.

Trans fatty acids, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes.

TLDR
Although there is some support from observational and experimental studies for the hypothesis that high intakes of TFAs may increase the risk for type 2 diabetes, inconsistencies across studies and methodological problems make it premature to draw definitive conclusions at this time.

Trans fatty acids and cardiovascular health: research completed?

TLDR
The results show that the effect of industrially produced trans fatty acids on heart health seen in observational studies is larger than predicted from changes in lipoprotein concentrations.

Trans-Palmitoleic Acid, Metabolic Risk Factors, and New-Onset Diabetes in U.S. Adults

TLDR
Circulating trans-palmitoleate is associated with lower insulin resistance, presence of atherogenic dyslipidemia, and incident diabetes, and may explain previously observed metabolic benefits of dairy consumption and support the need for detailed further experimental and clinical investigation.

Consumption of industrial and ruminant trans fatty acids and risk of coronary heart disease: a systematic review and meta-analysis of cohort studies

TLDR
It is suggested that industrial-T FA may be positively related to CHD, whereas ruminant-TFA is not, but the limited number of available studies prohibits any firm conclusions concerning whether the source of TFA is important.

Trans fatty acids and cardiovascular disease.

TLDR
The authors consider the feasibility and potential implications of reducing or eliminating the consumption of trans fatty acids from partially hydrogenated vegetable oils in the United States.

Dietary fatty acids affect plasma markers of inflammation in healthy men fed controlled diets: a randomized crossover study.

TLDR
Evidence that dietary fatty acids can modulate markers of inflammation is provided, although stearic acid minimally affects LDL cholesterol, it does appear to increase fibrinogen concentrations.
