Compared to vegetable fat high in artificial trans-fatty acids (and a control diet), ruminant fat high in natural trans-fatty acids improves liver health, gut biome, and inflammatory status of lab rats.
“I’ve definently experienced this but the other way around as a european travelling to the US. I felt like I was being rushed at the restaurant and expected to inhale my food in 30 min. Also I couldn’t really walk anywhere so I was basically sitting in a car or in a house(and felt terrible because of it). It felt so odd that if I wanted to go for a walk I had to first drive to a place where I could walk. And then drive back. I was also shocked when I bought butter for my bread at the grocery store and when I opened the butter it was WHITE. Snow white. The fat on the meat was the same. Snow white.
Given that this was just a snap shot of one place in the US but if I would compare that place(small town in Ohio) with my home town I can say for sure it is so much easier to live a healthy lifestyle in Sweden than in the US. I bet you can live well in the US too but it takes more effort(and probably more money).”
