So, trans fats actually can cause diabetes, and heart disease, and pretty much anything else, they also can, they cause a lot of inflammation in the body, and they and the type of fat it is, our bodies just aren't used to that we don't really have a way to process it. But it does get incorporated into our cells, like saturated fat, but it doesn't act biologically like saturated fat. And, so if you look at some of the interesting industries that have boomed like anti-aging, so trans fats actually age you a lot faster. Because they don't hold their shape, like the trans, like the saturated fats do. So, you're gonna get wrinkly, you're going to have issues with, you know, you're gonna have inflammation in your heart, all the other organs, blood sugar spikes, all kinds of problems with these trans fats.

So, they're in mostly processed food. So, all your snack foods used to have them potato chips, all of those kinds of things. There actually is trans fats in dairy, but it's the different kind. And so those trans fats are actually very healthy for you. But it's the man made fats. Man just doesn't do it right. You know, they're in, but mostly they, like, margarines, of course, shortening. Crisco used to be hydrogenated cottonseed oil. And so that's kind of how that got started

Annette Presley 

Because I had been taught, of course, that cholesterol in your body causes heart disease. And what I noticed is that the patients I had, who had higher cholesterol levels, they lived longer, they did better in the hospital, and they usually got out of the hospital, whereas the ones that had very low cholesterol often died, you know, or they just didn't do well, or they had to go to more long term care. You know, and so I was kind of noticing this in the hospital, thinking, I don't know, you know, what I'm being told isn't quite matching, what I'm seeing in my patients. And so, I think probably the biggest thing really is our view of heart disease. I think we're way off base on that, because cholesterol really doesn't have a whole lot to do with it.


BIO: Annette Presley

Annette Presley is a registered dietitian of over 28 years, certified functional nutritionist, author, and creator of the Mommy Maker Method. After discovering that the diet advice she’d learned as a dietitian was actually contributing to chronic diseases, Annette changed course to learn about functional nutrition and nutrigenomics, how nutrition impacts genetic expression.  Now Annette helps women literally manipulate their genes, so they can say goodbye to infertility struggles and hello to being a mom!

Core purpose/passion: My core mission is to make this world a better place for children and I do this by helping women get healthy before they get pregnant. For example, when women have adequate iodine stores before they get pregnant they are less likely to have a miscarriage for one thing but also less likely to have a child with allergies, asthma, autism, ADHD. We could totally reverse the trend of these childhood afflictions within 3 generations. Imagine how liberating that would be for parents and children!
