Part 4 of 4

Trans fats are bad and harmful to your body in a variety of ways, including your blood and how they prevent your cells from doing their job.

How Trans Fats Cause Coronary Heart Disease

When you eat anything containing these thicker, denser, artificially created trans fats, your blood also becomes thicker and more viscous.

Heart Disease From Hydrogenated Oil

Consuming trans fats or hydrogenated oils contributes to high blood pressure when the heart has to work so much harder to pump blood throughout the system. Thicker, gummy blood, can lodge in the arteries and build up arterial plaque.

What Are Trans Fats?

What Are Hydrogenated Oils and Trans Fats?

Part 3 of 4

To understand how hydrogenated oils and trans fats are created, and how they differ from the molecules our bodies are expecting from its fuel, let’s look at the elements involved:

  • Fatty acids and
  • Types of fat

Fatty Acids

Fatty acids are an essential part of lipids, the fat-soluble components of living cells. They are organic, as they contain both carbon and hydrogen molecules.

Fatty acids are acids produced when fats are broken down. Used for energy by most types of cells, fatty acids also help the body process cholesterol (both LDL and HDL cholesterol, in the proper ratio, are vital materials for our bodies to function properly). More importantly, fatty acids help rid the arteries of cholesterol build up.

History Of Hydrogenation

When and Why – Brief History of Hydrogenation

Part 2 of 4

The first patent to hydrogenate liquid oils was filed in 1902, and by 1911 Procter & Gamble began marketing Crisco, made largely from partially hydrogenated cottonseed oil.

Butterfat was in short supply, thus the less expensive whale and fish oil were hydrogenated. Soon after, the U.S. began to import soybeans for protein.

What to do with all that leftover soybean oil? Hydrogenate and market as a substitute for butter, of course!

The marketing agenda ramped up during the shortages of WWII, and the myth that margarine was healthier than butter (made from that devil, saturated fat) was well underway.

No Trans Fat!

Trans Fat Or Hydrogenated Oil
Pure Poison In Your Body!

Are You Toxic?

Do You Need A Body Detox?

Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the last few years (and a cave might be healthier than our homes!), you’ve been bombarded with news about “toxins,” “toxicity,” “detoxing,” “body detox” and the associated poisons, cures and cleanses.

Did you ever wonder exactly what those words mean?

Like millions of other health-conscious people, you may have accepted these terms while sub-consciously asking yourself:

  • “What exactly IS a toxin?”
  • “How does a toxin harm me?”
  • “What are the benefits of removing toxins from my body and environment?”
  • “How do I know if my loved ones and I are toxic?”
  • “How do I perform a body detox, and then keep myself pure and clean?”

Spraying of pesticides and herbicides is a pretty obvious toxin, whether in the field growing your food, around the office building where you work, or in your own home and garden. So is the pollution from cars and the air surrounding many cities.
