You do know that trans fats are not a naturally occurring type of fat?

They are manufactured by chemically adding hydrogen to vegetable 
oils. The current medical thought is that they are worse than 
saturated fats from animal sources or palm oil.

I generally stick to the mono-unsaturated fats these days, primarily 
olive and grape seed oil though as I stated yesterday, I will once in 
a while use animal fats as well if I think the flavor of the dish 
will suffer without it. I just don't make those sorts of dishes as 
often as I used to.
