Eating trans fats increases risk of death by 34%, according to a review of studies of more than 300,000 people, published in The BMJ. However, saturated fats (animal fats) did not increase risk. Trans fats are listed in the ingredients of packaged foods as “partially hydrogenated” oils, such as soybean oil or cottonseed oil, and are also found in margarine.
