    i know trans fats are bad, just not why

    http://foodfight.wordpress.com/2006/09/10/why-trans-fat-is-bad/

    REALLY dumbed down, 60 second read
    essentially states that we aren't 100% sure why they're bad, and that they both raise bad cholesterol, and lower good cholesterol

    just in case anyone wanted to read it

    i love capitalism as much as the next guy, but this is down right ferengi!

    why would i edit it?

    Ferengi. An alien race of traders most similar to Earth's 18th and 19th century sea-faring merchants. Their motto is buyer beware

    essentially- companies use trans fat to save money. they don't care about anything but the bottom line. just like a Ferengi.

    I think you should mention that you're referencing Star Trek beings as if they're an actual alien race that actually exists. Definitely that right comparison to make, though: :cool:
