Avoid "killer" fats!

Which of these high-fat foods should you avoid: Nuts? Avocados? Steak? Margarine? Potato chips? You probably know about the health risks of consuming saturated fat and high-cholesterol foods. But did you know the real killer is trans fats-- a common fat in packaged foods and baked goods?
