Good fats and bad fats, polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats

The requirement for these fats (in nut and seed form) should be at least one handful per day. Getting it directly from food is better than using a supplement, however, any form is better than none at all. These essential fats supply the raw material with which to make cell walls and are used as well in the structure of your mitochondria (cellular energy factories). If building a house needs wood, your cells need omega fats and their presence in the body enables oxygen to travel easily through the cells. There are studies which show that cancer grows in areas of your body where a decrease in oxygen occurs. Essential fatty acid deficiencies are behind this decreased oxygen situation and are also a prime cause of dry skin and hair.

Trans Fats

They are also called trans fatty acids and hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated fats, these are man-made or processed fats, produced by adding hydrogen gas as a liquid fat or oil to make it thicker or more solid. This increases its shelf life, in other words, it is less likely to spoil and will last longer.

If you are consuming trans fats (margarine, artificial butter, etc) your liver will be under stress. They are more like edible plastic and are very hard on the liver.
