Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Fats are arguably the most misunderstood of all the main food groups. This program aims to separate fact from fiction, and to give the good fats a fair evaluation. Clear graphics illustrate the differences between saturated and unsaturated fats, in terms of both their chemical structure and their impact on health. Graphics also help to explain how the body uses and stores fat, and how diets high in saturated fats can cause cardiovascular diseases. Foods containing specific kinds of fats are identified and linked to their vital role in a healthy, balanced diet, and we learn about an interesting study involving premature babies and a polyunsaturated fat. This program is filled with practical advice on ways to manage our intake of good and bad fats so that our health doesn't suffer.
