In recent years the mainstream media has reported on the dangerous link between trans fats, heart disease, and cholesterol problems. What they haven’t reported is the negative impact on your fertility.
Trans fat is an artificially altered oil molecule generally as a result of heating up vegetable oils. It’s common in margarines and especially fast foods.
The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have classified this as a non-essential fat. Both the NAS and WHO recommend avoiding trans fats.
According to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition the probabilities of becoming pregnant plummeted by 73% for every extra 4g of trans fats eaten each day. That’s the equivalent of half a portion of takeaway fried chicken or a small packet of chips or biscuits or other processed foods.
Researchers at Harvard also found that women who consumed a high intake of trans fats had a near 80% chance of suffering from ovulation problems. Interestingly these researchers also found certain polyunsaturated fatty acids reduced the risk of infertility. This is why it’s crucial that you eat the correct fats — the essential fats your body needs for health and vitality.
