World Health Organization urges ban on industrial trans-fats by 2023

WHO aims to eliminate the use of trans fats world wide by 2023 and released REPLACE, a step-by-step guide for the elimination of industrially-produced trans-fatty acids from the global food supply. He further stated that implementing the six strategies in the REPLACE plan will help in eliminating the prevalence of trans-fat, thereby signifying a pivotal victory for WHO's initiative to combat cardiovascular ailments.

Food makers liked artificial trans fats because they prolonged product shelf life.

According to World Health Organization, artificial trans fats, or trans fatty acids, are made when vegetable oil hardens in a process called hydrogenation.

Eliminating these fats is the "key to protecting health and saving lives", it said, in a statement.

They have been known to raise levels of cholesterol and increase risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

Michael Carrick keen to learn from Jose Mourinho after retirement
It's a no-brainer to try to pick people's brains to try to learn as much as I can. I was fine once I got here but in the hotel before I left, it was mixed emotions.

Back in the 1970s, Dr. Willett was one of the first researchers to sound the alarm about trans fats, a stance that earned him scorn from the food industry and even fellow nutritionists.

Industrially produced trans-fats are found in hardened vegetable fats, such as margarine, and often in snacks, baked and fried foods.

According to the USDA, a reduction in trans fat could prevent almost 30,000 premature deaths in the USA every year.

He's right. Various studies have shown that both the bans in NY and Denmark noticeably reduced the rate of death from heart disease in just three years.

The guidelines, he said, will ensure the prompt, complete and sustained elimination of industrially produced trans fats from the food supply and will include recommended legislation; monitoring of trans fats content in the food supply and changes in their consumption by the population; information campaigns to inform the public and policymakers about the negative health impact of trans fats.

There are two main sources for trans fats: natural sources (in the dairy products and meat of ruminants, such as cows and sheep); and industrially produced sources (partially hydrogenated oils).

Earlier this month World Health Organization issued its first draft recommendations on trans fats since 2002, saying adults and children should consume a maximum of one percent of their daily calories in the form of trans fats. Nevertheless, the country has the opportunity to address its health and economics by supporting more locally produced oils.

Switzerland, Britain, Canada, and the U.S. have all already moved to ban trans fats.

The United States Food and Drug Administration reports that as many as 7,000 fatalities and 20,000 heart attacks can be prevented by the reduction of trans fats in the American diet.
