What’s going away…finally? Trans Fats!!! Recent law signed by President Obama and being enforced by the Food and Drug Administration will soon put an end to the use of all trans fats in foods. Many food manufacturers have already done so but by 2018 there can be no trans fats in any foods whatsoever. This is huge because it is estimated that trans fats in our foods causes 20,000 heart attacks and almost as many deaths from heart disease each year for the past 40 years!!
We have always said that cholesterol is not nor has it ever been the cause of heart disease. The real culprits are trans fats and rancid vegetable oils, both pervasive in our diets.
The Institute of Medicine has determined that there is NO safe level of consumption of trans fats, which means even trace amounts lurking in some food carry significant health risks. Since the food industry still has almost 3 years to fully remove these deadly fats from our food you still need to be careful. Look at Nutrition Facts labels and watch out for anything that sounds close to “partially hydrogenated oil”. This is the same as a trans fat. Some of the foods that still contain high amounts of trans fats include:
Crackers, cookies, cakes, pastries, and other baked goods unless you made them
Cake, pancake, waffle and other baking mixes (read the label)
Coffee creamers (liquid and powdered)
Canned frosting (really loaded)
Frozen Dinners and Pizzas
Since most of these products above are not very healthy to start with we shouldn’t be eating them anyway but with the truth about trans fats finally coming out you should now understand that these are deadly.
Trans fats together with rancid vegetable oils are the biggest cause of the heart disease epidemic that has been killing millions for over 40 years. The food industry is NOT your friend! They are only in it for the money and not your well-being. Do NOT trust them or their advertising.
The only safe fats to use are olive oil, avocado oil, and saturated fats like butter and cream. These do not become rancid and form free radicals and are not artificial.
Since most of us have consumed our fair share of these potentially deadly oils you may want to do something about protecting yourself. Begin by taking a Full Spectrum supplement every day. Also you may wish to add an oral chelation formula to help keep your arteries, damaged by these artificial fats, free from blockages.

This is serious stuff folks. There is a reason why Heart Disease has been killing more of us every year for the past 40+ years. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!!
