If you want a very concrete vision of what is happening when you eat animal fats, hydrogenated fats, or trans fats, have a look at blood that has been refrigerated in a blood bank. It looks just like soup in the refrigerator with that big, thick band of fat floating on top.

Blech, but recommendable.

I wonder if some sort of notice would be put out on me if I asked for some of my blood to take home. I would think having that sitting in my refrigerator would be an excellent reminder to watch what I eat.

Do they skim the fat before using it? Seems like the polite thing to do. I have enough of my own fat. If I ever need a blood transfusion, I'd rather not have theirs too :-)
