High in fat

The Austin Diagnostic Clinic Cardiologist Dr. Joseph Imsais was asked to comment on the government’s announcement to phase out trans fats from processed foods.

FDA commissioner Margaret Hamburg says the move could prevent 20,000 heart attacks and 7000 deaths each year. Trans-fats are considered the worst kind of fat for your heart and are commonly found in processed foods including some microwave popcorn and frozen pizza.
