Fats play an essential role in human health from head (brain) to toe (joints), and every cell in between, according to Wendy Bazilian, DrPH, RD. Fats also help us feel full and ensure healthy communication between nerve impulses and the transfer of nutrients through the bloodstream. Embrace unsaturated fats found in foods such as walnuts, seeds, plant oils, avocados, and fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, trout, sardines, mackerel and herring.
