Trans Fatty Acids
Hydrogenated & Partially Hydrogenated Oils:
Proven Serious Health Effects
After closely scrutinizing data from scientific studies and reviews, many European countries have either banned hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils altogether or have instituted future dates for elimination of their use in foods. These government actions concerning the trans fatty acids (hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils) is directly related to studies that link trans fatty acid (hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oil) consumption from processed foods to the development of diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Hydrogenation of oils, with removal of essential fatty acids, is used in the food industry for the sole purpose of prolonging the shelf life of processed foods (to maximize profits). Read the following documents to inform yourself of the potential health consequences of trans fats used by the food industry. Click here for list of foods that may contain hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils.
I wonder how long it has been in our foods before we figured it out. How much damage has this done without us even knowing? With this kind of guilt on their consciences, we shouldn't wonder why wealthy corporate executives commit suicide.
I also wonder whether trans fats aren't the real cause of cholesterol. Consider the current info: they want us to believe that there are two kinds of fats; both occur naturally, but one is good and the other is bad. A third kind of fat has been exposed, and it is strangely similar to the "bad fat" that they have been telling us about. Could they be lying to us about the "bad fat" in an attempt to prevent lawsuits? (If people are dying from natural fats, there is nothing that can be done. If people are dying from the modification of foods by corporations, the corporations can be held liable.) Knowing that trans fat is an unnaturally modified fat that resists breaking down in natural processes to increase shelf life, it would probably also resist breaking down inside the body...it would collect along the lining of arteries and other locations...sound familiar to anyone? Just my guess. I know that they will try to avoid liability for as long as possible, so I can't imagine that they are going to tell us the truth. (A damaged party can't place a claim until they know that they are damaged, and know who damaged them...)

My Uncle is in his late 60's and every single day of his life he has eaten pure Ghee, which is clarified butter, its packed absolutly loaded with the so called bad saturated fat and he is 145 at 5,8, he works on a farm and has a large herd of Buffalo's and Cows, its very hard manual work and it ground me down in a week.
Do know about the RAW Milk issue and how the FDA have been making workers on Raw Organic farms wires in order to get information which they can use in a court of law, a private court at that.
I honestly don't believe cholesterols is bad for you based on what I have experienced and read , there are so many published papers and books from researchers who are heart specialist and they all say the same thing, The Cholesterol Myth for one is a great book exposing the big lies.
I can't ever get real butter from a store these days, the highest butter percentage is normally 80%, its still mixed with a blend of vegetable oil to make it spreadable.
Eat as much natural and raw food as you can, stay the hell away from Plastic margarines!
