Medical visualization of an overweight anatomical model along with text describing a variety of diseases that excessive amounts of trans fats can cause. Eating trans fats regularly can inflame the circulatory system and cause plaque build-up leading to blood vessel diseases such as atherosclerosis or aneurysms. Heart attack and stroke can also result from plaque build-up in the arteries. Trans fats lower HDL (good) cholesterol and raise LDL (bad) cholesterol, which contributes to plaque build-up in arteries and increases the risk of a heart attack and stroke.
