Unsaturated fats are known as the “good fats”, this includes monounsaturated fats which are products such as olive oil, peanut oil , canola oil and avocado oil etc. As well as poly unsaturated fats which include sunflower oil that the body cannot manufacture for itself. Unsaturated fats are good for bodies as they increase high density lipoprotein (HDL cholesterol) which is the good cholesterol. According to Walsh B’s article in the Time magazine, “fats found in vegetables like olives and in fish like salmon can actually protect against heart disease” These products both fall under unsaturated fats, by increasing the unsaturated fats being consumed it increases the HDL cholesterol which then decreases the chances of heart attacks as it is cardio protective. They also assist with the absorption of fat soluble vitamins. “When a fat soluble vitamin is consumed, the body absorbs the vitamin and stores it in the fatty tissue”(www.livestrong.com) . They also provide structure in the cell walls in our bodies.” Each cell has a wall to support the cell, determine the shape of the cell, control the rate of cell growth and resist water
