Re macular disease (WDDTY vol 15 no 3), do you mean vegetable fats after they’ve been processed, as in margarine?
It also states that ‘these fats included the monounsaturated, polyunsaturated and trans unsaturated fat’”, which implies that the fats mentioned are indeed processed – or not? – Gillian Sharman, Gatley
PROOF! replies: The study referred to processed food, which is rich in processed polyunsaturated fats and hydrogenated trans fats. The point is to eat an unprocessed, wholefood diet high in omega-3 (from, say, flaxseed oil) and to ensure you don’t overdose on omega-6 fats.
