Call to Action:

Avoid any foods that contains the word “hydrogenated” in it, which includes partially hydrogenated oil; this is man-made oil that contains trans fats.

As you read labels, you’ll be amazed how many processed foods you will find that contain partially hydrogenated oils. They are found in chips, cookies, cakes, pies, crackers, pizza, salad dressing, mayonnaise, frozen dinners, snack foods, and even most peanut butters, a staple for most families.

To your wellness,
