TRANS fats, used to cook foods like French fries and found in biscuits, dramatically increase a woman’s risk of becoming infertile, according to new research.
Scientists found that for every two per cent increase in the number of calories a woman got from trans fats instead of carbohydrates, her risk of infertility increased by 73 per cent.
Scientists believe trans fats – found mostly in processed vegetable oils – interfere with cells that play a vital role in ovulation.
