Healthy Heart:  What to Avoid; What to Do 

In my last article, I spoke about avoiding: trans fatty acids, as found in all fried food; most margarine in high doses; shortening, such as Crisco; refined oils, which are practically all the liquid oils on the grocery store shelves and in baked goods labeled partially hydrogenated or hydrogenated oils.

Trans fats are found naturally in foods in very small amounts and the body will burn these for energy as it does not want them in the cell structure. The above "foods", and I am being kind in labeling them "food", overwhelm the body in trans fats. If you are eating these trans fat foods, you are probably also not getting the fats/oils in an unrefined form that you really need. 

There are many unrefined oils in perle form that you can purchase from Standard Process. You can get other ones at the health food store.  These bad oils replaced by good oils are essential to cardiovascular health.

At age 59, I can still run down a mountain trail dodging pitfalls along the way. It is pure exhilaration. If you cannot do this or some similar activity, you are experiencing some degree of muscle apathy and low coordination. By age 50 to 55 this becomes noticeable in everyone.
