Watching for Trans Fat

Trans fat has joined saturated fat on the "bad fat" list. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) now requires nutrition labels to include the amount of trans fat in each food. Doughnuts, french fries, margarine and fried chicken are some examples of foods that contain trans fat, which is worse for the heart than saturated fat.
