What's On Your Fries?

According to a study, fast food french fries in New York City are healthier than those in most other places, with 98% less trans fat and 10% less saturated fat. The ban on trans fat in New York's food outlets took effect in November 2008.

Trans fats found in margarine, fried foods and many baked goods can raise LDL ("bad") cholesterol and lower your HDL ("good") cholesterol.
