Scientists ID molecular 'switch' in liver that triggers harmful effects of saturated and trans fats

... in the form of very low-density lipoproteins. The investigators noted that in mice fed high-fat diets, the PCG-1beta mechanism actually decreased cholesterol in the liver while increasing it in the bloodstream. "Before this report, it wasn't clear what the differences were between saturated fats and unsaturated ...
