Margarine Aggression

Trans fats (that's margarine!) make you more aggressive--should you switch to butter?

The emotions that have been tied to trans fats include irritability and outright aggression (hey, maybe your BOSS should switch to butter).

Science Daily reports that "dietary trans fatty acids are primarily products of hydrogenation, which makes unsaturated oils solid at room temperature. They are present at high levels in margarines, shortenings and prepared foods. Adverse health effects have been identified in lipid levels, metabolic function, insulin resistance, oxidation, inflammation, and cardiac health."

They quote researcher Beatrice Golomb as saying, "If the association between trans fats and aggressive behavior proves to be causal, this adds further rationale to recommendations to avoid eating trans fats, or including them in foods provided at institutions like schools and prisons (!), since the detrimental effects of trans fats may extend beyond the person who consumes them to affect others."

If you've been eating too much margarine--and everything else--lately, you may need to LOSE WEIGHT, and Anne Strieber's famous diet book "What I Learned From the Fat Years" can help you do just that!
