Thailand becomes trans fat free country 🇹🇭: The ban on industrially-produced trans fat enforced on 9 January is an important initiative to beat Non-communicable diseases. Increased intake of trans fat is associated with increased risk of coronary heart disease mortality and events. Globally, increased trans-fatty acid intake is estimated to be responsible for more than 500,000 deaths per year.

Trans-fatty acids are fatty acids with at least one double carbon–carbon bond in the trans configuration. Transfat can be produced industrially and is often found in baked and fried foods, prepared or pre-packaged snacks and food, and cooking oils and spreads.
