When I asked the people at the science fair to try to sort the fats only one person got it right. (It was my teacher!)
A heart attack is when your heart cannot get the oxygen it needs to give oxygen to the rest of the body. When you eat too much bad fat that fat mixes with dead cells, and little by little it starts to clog the inside of your veins. When the blood carrying oxygen for the heart cannot get through your heart acts just like you would without oxygen. This is why everyone should learn what fats are good for you and witch fats are not.
There are different kinds of fats. One group contains fats that are very good for your heart. They are usually oils. They are called polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats The next group contains fats that are animal fats (or saturated fats). These are not necessarily good for your heart but you are allowed on special occasions. And sadly the last group, the one that tastes the best, the trans fat. Trans fat is the worst you can get! They take the good fats then deep fry them and add chemicals to make it taste good!
I found that the very worst fat is trans fat. Trans fat is a fat that's very deadly. If you have at least one gram of trans fat every day for ten years you have a 20% greater chance of having heart disease!
If you are in a store and are looking to buy something check the ingredients. If you see anything that says on the package trans fat, hydrogenated fat or partially hydrogenated fat don't buy it! It's not good for you! All these foods have trans fats!
Hint: Good fats are usually liquid at room temperature; bad fats are solid!
