S S s h b p b a c s l t u b t BSTRACT rans fatty acids have long been used in food manufacuring due in part to their melting point at room temperture between saturated and unsaturated fats. However, ncreasing epidemiologic and biochemical evidence sugest that excessive trans fats in the diet are a significant isk factor for cardiovascular events. A 2% absolute inrease in energy intake from trans fat has been associated ith a 23% increase in cardiovascular risk. Although enmark has shown it is…

Ruminant and industrially produced trans fatty acids: health aspects
It is found that in many countries consumption >20 g of IP-TFA in a one-meal menu consisting of some popular foods is possible, even though the average intake in these countries is low, and the feasibility of eliminating IP- TFA from foods without side effects for the population is considered.
Trans-fatty acids intake and risk of myocardial infarction.
The hypothesis that intake of partially hydrogenated vegetable oils may contribute to the risk of myocardial infarction is supported, after adjustment for established coronary risk factors, multivitamin use, and intake of saturated fat, monounsaturated fat, linoleic acid, dietary cholesterol, vitamins E and C, carotene, and fiber.
Study of the effect of trans fatty acids from ruminants on blood lipids and other risk factors for cardiovascular disease.
The results suggest that, whereas a high dietary intake of TFA from ruminants may adversely affect cholesterol homeostasis, moderate intakes of rTFA that are well above the upper limit of current human consumption have neutral effects on plasma lipids and other cardiovascular disease risk factors.
Effect of hydrogenated and saturated, relative to polyunsaturated, fat on immune and inflammatory responses of adults with moderate hypercholesterolemia.
The results indicate that consumption of a diet high in hydrogenated fat does not adversely affect cellular immunity but increases production of inflammatory cytokines that have been associated with the pathophysiology of atherosclerosis.

Diet and Lifestyle Recommendations Revision 2006: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association Nutrition Committee
Adhering to these diet and lifestyle recommendations, Americans can substantially reduce their risk of developing cardiovascular disease, which remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States.
