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

...ty acids, or trans fats, are artificially produced solid fats used in shortening and margarine, baked goods, and the oils used to cook french fries and other fast food. Studies have shown that trans fats not only raise LDL levels in the bloodstream but lower high-density lipoproteins (HDL, or "good" choles...
