From a Voice of Eden Newsletter:

Hydrogenated oil was first invented in 1903 for Soap. In 1911 Proctor and Gamble came out with Crisco. No one would buy it so they gave it away. After 1914 big companies became big successes because they found that with hydrogenated oil in their product it could sit on the shelves for months at room temperature, and it was cheap. This meant big profits.
A dramatic increase in disease was apparent during the 30’s and 40’s. First was a new disease that seemed like diabetes but was not caused by a deficiency of insulin. The medical profession did not know what caused the insulin to be resistant. They were perplexed to what was this new disease and labelled it Diabetes II.
The next dramatic increase was heart disease and then cancer.
While hydrogenated oil can’t be blamed for everything it may have been the beginning of the end of food that your body can use. Food is no longer produced for health, it is produced for profits. The trouble is that what is profitable and what is healthy are often 2 different things.
Hydrogenated oils increase free radicals in your body. Free radicals are not a good thing.
