so everyone seems to agree that trans fat is bad and yet I pick up the butter and cheese and always seem to see some .2, .3. .4 trans in the mix. is this a concern or is this naturally occurring trans which may or may not be ok? help me out guys.

thanks.

It appears to have clinical efficacy in many diseases http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16210722 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20143104 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15623825 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19846417 A strong argument for getting some ruminant fat in the diet.

What kind of butter and cheese are you looking at because I don't see that in the butter or cheese I buy.

natural trans fats in dairy is CLA, which is not bad for you at all. in fact, CLA has some properties that are now believed to be very beneficial for a variety of reasons, including muscle building, cardiovascular health, and weight loss.

CLA is most abundant in the fat of ruminant animals (specifically animals that feed on grass pastures).

This includes dairy fat and meat fat.

Naturally occurring trans fats do not contain much if any elaidic acid, which is the bad one.

Grass-fed dairy contains a fair amount of CLAs, which are actually trans fats that seem to help burn fat and prevent cancer. I'm not worried about trans fats from beef, dairy, and other animal products.
