Trans Fats are bad.....but we knew that anyway

Just saw this abstract in the latest

Consumption of dietary fat and meat and risk of ovarian cancer in the Netherlands Cohort Study

Conclusion: This prospective study suggests that trans unsaturated fatty acids, but no other types of fat or meat, are associated with increased ovarian cancer risk.

So avoid the artificual industrial fats......but natural meats and fats are fine?

Thanks for posting that one up Chris. Had that one sitting there in a tab for a couple of weeks! Yes - just more confirmation of what we suspect is the case... trans fats, not saturated fats, are driving some/many/most issues normally ascribed to saturated fat (and meat as the primary food source of SFA).
