Abstract


The study found out that  individuals with higher intakes of trans fats experienced “difficulties with emotional awareness,” and a lower level of emotional “clarity”. While the people who had lower transfats were better able to control their emotions. Consumption of a diet that contains more transfats increases the cholesterol level in blood which in turn can cause heart attack, strokes and even depression
