Distinguishing Between Good and Bad Fats in the Human Diet - Contrary to public belief, not all fats that we consume are bad. Similar to our lesson in complex carbohydrates and added sugars, the key is to be able to distinguish the “good” from the “bad,” as well as to learn ways to select leaner food products more wisely and to moderate our total daily fat intake. The fats that are considered “bad” are the saturated and trans-fatty acids, which are both associated with raising LDL cholesterol (Whitney & Rolfes, 2005, pg 159). An elevated level of LDL cholesterol is linked with artherosclerosis, a plaque formation in arterial walls that causes stiffening and the loss of elasticity in their smooth muscle (Marieb & Hoehn, 2007, pg 980)....   [tags: nutrition, health, dietetics] 714 words
