    "[F]ast food from major chains in most countries still contains unacceptably high levels of industrially produced trans-fatty acids... [which] have powerful biological effects and may contribute to increased weight gain, abdominal obesity, type 2 diabetes and coronary artery disease," concludes a study from the University of Copenhagen in Copenhagen, Denmark.
