Trans fats may cause memory and learning decline

An animal study indicates that trans fats are capable of causing memory and learning difficulties. High fat diets have the same effect but not to the same extent. Trans fats have already been linked to heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease. The FDA has made it a requirement that all trans fat content must be listed on food labels by 2006.
