Why is palm oil harmful?

Palm oil contains palmitic fatty acid, which is a saturated medium chain fatty acid. It is also said that this is a trans fatty acid. Fatty acids that have a double bond, i.e., are unsaturated, depending on the angle of the double bond, can be cis or trans, and the trans type accumulates in cells due to the lack of enzyme breakdown and becomes a problem. A saturated fatty acid does not have a double bond and cannot be trans. This is why palm oil is harmful.
