Baker & Taylor Presents information about trans fats, including what they are, how they are produced, their history, and the negative health effects of eating them.
Rosen Pub Group This engrossing look at the hidden dangers in your food will have students thinking twice about relying on packaged and fast foods. Readers learn about fats (fatty acids, unsaturated fats, saturated fats, and trans fats). The book’s content focuses on trans fats: where they come from, how they are produced, and their health aspects, and the recent attempt to eliminate trans fats from cooking and processing. Why we chose to publish this book: Trans fats lurk where we least expect them in our food. With the number of overweight and obese children rising in the U.S. today, the increased incidence of diabetes in children, young people’s more sedentary lifestyle, kids are eating more fast food that contains trans fats. The federal and state governments are working to eliminate trans fats from our foods and to recommend healthier foods at home and at school. Rosen’s series will help to guide students on their path to healthy meals and physical wellbeing.
