The human immune system is a wonderful thing. It responds quickly when we’re injured (the swelling around a sprained joint or a small cut), it attacks microscopic invaders like viruses and bacteria, and it even stores information that helps it fight future infections. It’s a beautiful protector that we’re partially born with and partially develop throughout our life.

We use them in baking and frying, and food manufactures use them in everything from mayonnaise to cookies. They have soared in popularity at the expense of butter and lard, once the main source of cooking fats in American diets.
