Trans fats: Are the alternatives any better?

For today’s post I’d like to direct you to my guest post on trans fats and the current crop of alternatives on Nutrition Nuts and Bolts, the blog of one of my fellow students, Shelly Najjar. I talk about what trans fats are (aka hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils), why it’s a good thing that they are being slowly but steadily removed from the food supply…and why what is taking their place may not be a whole lot better.
