Worth reading if you’re nutritionally minded. Of note is the WHO’s recommendation, based on new international data:

to significantly reduce or to virtually eliminate industrially produced TFA from the food supply… by the virtual elimination of partially hydrogenated vegetable oils in the human food supply, replacing them with healthy cis-unsaturated fatty acids.
