In brief: Medical risks.

A diet high in bad fats (saturated fats and trans-fats), can lead to heart disease, stroke and peripheral vascular disease.
As well, fats in general are calorie-dense, and their over-ingestion can lead to obesity, which in and of itself has myriad medical risk associations.
