In recent years, the danger of hydrogenated oils has come to light, resulting in a shift away from products such as margarine. Find a recent article in the Capella library or on the Internet on trans fats and address the following in your discussion post:
- Summarize the main point of the article.
- Consider what you have learned about the scientific method in your Visualizing Human Biologytext. Then, answer the following:
- Do you think the article presents sufficient scientific evidence to support its claims? Why or why not?
- How might you design a study to check the facts, if you had to do it? (Remember the stages of the scientific method from the text).
- Do you consider the source to be reliable? Why or why not?
- State whether, based on your research, manufactured trans fats should be banned. Why or why not?
- Provide the article citation in APA format, which includes the title, author, date, and URL, if from the Internet.
