An Update on the Relationship Between Trans Fats and Heart Disease


November 21, 1997

An article and accompanying editorial in The New England Journal of Medicine adds new information to three interviews with Dr. Mary Enig on Trans Fats in processed foods in our Nutrition Library.

The article is Dietary Fat Intake and the Risk of Coronary Heart Disease in Women by Harvard researchers.

The editorial is Hardened Fats, Hardened Arteries? by Tim Byers of the University of Colorado School of Health.

A less technical version, Study Shows Dangers of Stick Margarine, Shortening, can be found on CNN.
