Obesity may eventually lead to infertility and distress for the involved couple, delegates at the symposium on "Trans Fats: Global and Indian Perspectives," heard.

Many distinguished speakers spoke at the symposium and all of them exhorted the removal of trans fats from daily diet. Dr Ahmed Ibrahim, scientist at National Institute of Nutrition, Hyderabad said that several countries like Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark and USA have introduced regulatory norms to tackle the rise of trans fats.

In fact restaurants in New York have completely abolished them from the menu.

The awareness of the ill effects of trans fats in India is very low. It was only in 2006 that many health conscious people awoke to the ill effects of TFAs. Unfortunately the absence of regulation in this area means that almost all hotels continue to use trans-fat laden oil for cooking.
