Often people buy conventional foods while not thinking about the consequences. Trans-fat which is the worst type of fat to consume is often found in processed foods. The problem with trans-fat is that, it raises your bad cholesterol and lowers your good cholesterol, which is not good for your health.

This is where the term "hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated" found on food labels comes from. The Manufactured form of trans-fat (hydrogenated oil) is than added to many foods in order to prolong shelf life.
