When I appeared on Fresno’s CBS News, I explained that trans fats are man-made. Your body just can’t break them down. Consuming them increases your risk of developing heart disease. Malaysian sustainable palm oil is a more natural choice. Not only is it good for your body, it’s good for the planet.

Choose nutrient-dense foods. When it comes to oils, I prefer Malaysian sustainable palm oil because it is rich in vitamin E tocotrienols and beta carotene.
