Some fats are actually essential for life (hence the name essential fatty acids). The major kinds of fats are: saturated fatty acids, polyunsaturated fatty acids, and monounsaturated fatty acids.
Keeping variety in your diet helps insure a good balance of essential fatty acids. Animal fats and margarine are bad for your health because of the high content of saturated fatty acids. Another reason to avoid eating meat.
Linoleic acid is an unsaturated fatty acid essential for healthy skin, blood circulation, bone, brain, and nerves. Linoleic acid is used for cell membrane metabolism. Linoleic fatty acid is used to make prostaglandins.
Essential fatty acids are destroyed by heating (including cooking). The presence of animal fats increases the destruction of essential fatty acids during cooking. Essential fatty acids are destroyed by hydrogenation.
