The World Health Organization has released a plan to help countries wipe out transfats from the global food supply.

In a release issued Monday, the U.N. health agency said eliminating transfats is critical to preventing deaths worldwide. WHO estimates that eating transfats — commonly found in baked and processed foods — leads to the deaths of more than 500,000 people from heart disease every year.
