Synthetic vs.natural: Trans fats are terrible for health as they are hydrogenated and inflame the artery walls as well as ruining your cholesterol - stay away! saturated fats like butter, coconut oils in reasonable quantities are actually now found to be ok for health and coconut oil in particular has been found to be good for health, especially with memory issues like alzheimers.Meats are saturated, eat in moderation.
