Hydrogenated Oils~The Silent Killer that are in your foods
Hydrogenated oils are referred to as the Silent Killer, if you see the word hydrogenated on the label ingredients put that item back on the shelf. They are in pizza, pot pies, cereal, Crackers, cookies,donuts etc. Cyberparent says hydrogenated fats, although not saturated, act like saturated fats in our bodies and can do as much, or maybe even more, harm. Get your fats from Omega 3's and Omega 6's and please check the labels.
