Hazards of trans fats and "safety standards" Trans fat is a category referred to as trans fatty acids containing double bonds. Many epidemiological investigation was or animal studies over trans fats all possible hazards, including on cardiovascular health effects have the strongest evidence, is widely accepted.

WHO and national authorities of the provisions of trans fats also formulated based on its impact on cardiovascular health. For example, the WHO recommended that trans fat per day from the heat does not exceed 1% of the total calories of food (roughly equivalent to 2 g).

China adopted the goal to do assessments, while countries such as Britain and France are the two percent as a recommendation. Of particular note is: This is not a "safety standards" can only be regarded as a "guidance", which is not to say more than this amount on "harmful"

, below this amount on the "safe", but that "less than The amount of the risks of acceptable. " Our goal, they still should be "as low as possible."

However, the results of different studies "intake and coronary heart disease risk in different relations ", the risk is one of the largest research conclusions trans fat calories total calorie foods proportion" Every increase of 2 percentage points,

coronary heart disease rate doubled. " Other studies have shown the risk to be much smaller than this. Moreover, the "risk doubles" is a relative proportion of specific risk also depends on the actual rate of, for example, from 0.1% to 0.2%, compared with 1% to 2% of the double real risk to much lower.

As for the impact of early growth and development, type Ⅱ diabetes, hypertension , cancer and other diseases associated with trans fats, there is no clear evidence to prove.
