It is better to cook with oils than with lard or margarine because saturated and trans fats are more easily converted into the “bad” cholesterol associated with heart disease.

Thus, phospholipids can join—or serve as an interface between—a water environment on one side and a lipid environment on the other.

However, some atoms may have a different number of neutrons. An atom of an element with a different number of neutrons is called an isotope (ıi- -so-to-p). 3). All isotopes of an element have the same chemical properties because they have the same number of protons and electrons. 3 The three isotopes of hydrogen. Notice that only the number of neutrons changes. 28 Chapter 2 Chemicals of Life CheckMyUnderstanding 1. What is the relationship among matter, elements, and atoms? 2. What is the basic structure of an atom?

Saturated fats, such as butter and lard, are solid at room temperature. Excessive saturated fats in the diet are associated with an increased risk of heart disease (coronary artery disease). In unsaturated fats (plant oils), not all carbon bonds in the fatty acids are filled with hydrogen atoms, and one or more double carbon–carbon bonds are present. , O OH corn, safflower, and soy oils) have two or more carbon– carbon double bonds. Unsaturated fats occur as oils at room temperature. , margarine) at room temperature.
