We all know that we’re not supposed to eat a ton of fatty or fried foods.
It’s no secret that they’re not good for us or our bodies, as they may contribute to heart disease, which is the leading cause of death in the United States. Around 25% of deaths in the country are caused by heart disease and its complications.

The journal Nutrition published a report that shows that the temperature we cook food at may be just as important as the oils we use to cook.
“When food is heated up to a high temperature, new compounds are created, and some of them are known to be harmful to health,” explained Raj Bhopal, professor of public health at the University of Edinburgh.
According to CNN, when foods are cooked at high temperatures, they release chemicals called neo-formed contaminants (NFCs). Some NFCs are trans fats, which increase the risk of heart disease.
