People love to eat foods with trans-fats

Artificial trans-fats are created by adding hydrogen to natural fats to make them more stable and tasty.

These fats are found in margarine, spreads, creamers and deep-fried, and other baked goods to extend a product’s shelf life.

And when these foods are consumed often, they could act as the catalyst for chronic inflammation, insulin resistance, and belly fat, high blood cholesterol levels, and impaired arterial function. These could lead to serious diseases of the heart and blood vessels.

Based on an online poll that targeted Twitter and Instagram users by Viedial, results show that the majority (over 50 percent) of persons who responded to the poll choose to eat unhealthy carbs and junk food that largely contain trans fats over healthy fruits and vegetables.
