Health effects of trans-fatty acids: experimental and observational evidence

Authors:Mozaffarian, D., Aro, A. and Willett, W. C.
"Controlled trials and observational studies provide concordant evidence that consumption of TFA from partially hydrogenated oils adversely affects multiple cardiovascular risk factors and contributes significantly to increased risk of CHD events. The public health implications of ruminant TFA consumption appear much more limited. The effects of specific TFA isomers require further investigation."
