trans fats make you stupid

...which is probably why people keep eating them.

This study gives one more reason to not eat trans fats - as if warped cell structure, raised bad cholesterol, lowered good cholesterol, artery-clogging and minor complaints like skin damage weren't enough.

In other, more random news - don't waste your money on Secret brand "bottom shaper" nylons. They appear to be squishing rather than lifting. Just saying.

This is just another reason why Old Dutch is a great potato chip company (as far as a potato chip company can be good). Their addictive little snacks have 0% trans fats! So you can stuff yourself silly with an unburdened mind.

Uhh.. yeah. YES I am aware of how generally bad chips are.

Anyways, I'm personally a big fan of Quo brand nylons from Shoppers. They have crotchless nylons. They're a biotch to put on straight, but they keep the ventilation flowing.

Miss Vickie's are also trans-fat free, but they always have been and don't see any reason to put it on the label. Kettle Chips, too.

Personally, I think Old Dutch are kind of icky, but I also like it when I think things that are bad for me are icky (although in this case, it's not like Miss Vickie is going to do me any more good...)
