Abstract: 

Introduction: Impressive research demonstrates the effete of margarine Trans fatty acids on many physiological and behavioral mechanisms in both humans and animals. The propose of this research was to evaluate effects of margarine on reproduction in Wistar rats.
Methods: To investigate the effect of dietary margarine on reproduction, 46 Wistar female and male rats were divided into 4 groups. Males and females rats in group 1 fed the margarine 3% with standard foods, in group 2 only female rats and in group 3 only male rats add margarine to the standard foods. Male and female rats in group 4 only standard food were dietary administrated. Administration was started one month pre mating and continued during mating, gestation and lactation periods. At the end the pups were observed for body weight, sex ratio, number of pups per litter and pups mortality.
Results: The weight and female ratio of pups were significantly increased in group 2 as compared to group 1 and 4. Also the comparison of pups mortality in four groups showed that pops mortality increased in group 2 as compare to other groups.
Conclusion: The results with this study suggest that dietary administration of margarine to female rats can significantly increase weight, ratio of female pops and the mortality of pops in Wistar rats.
