What effect does consuming natural (ruminant) vs. synthetic (industrially hydrogenated) trans fatty acids have on LDL-, HDL- and non-HDL cholesterol? (DGAC 2010)

Conclusion

Limited evidence is available to support a substantial biological difference in the detrimental effects of industrial trans fatty acids (iTFA) and ruminant trans fatty acids (rTFA) on health when rTFA is consumed at seven to ten times the normal level of consumption.
