BUT, when you're discussing the fat in meat/eggs/dairy, there's also a difference in the fat between an animal that was fed a conventional mass-produced diet, and an animal that was fed the diet it evolved to eat. Cows evolved to eat grass/hay, and grains make them ill. Therefore the fat that comes from a grain fed cow is not going to be as healthy as the fat on a grass-fed cow... it is still healthier than margarine though, IMO. Chickens evolved as free-ranging omnivores, eating bugs and seeds - a chicken that is fed a strictly grain diet or one that is fed animal by-products (like beef bone) while being confined in a cage is not a healthy chicken, and therefore the fat in their eggs (or meat) is not as healthy as that from a chicken eating their intended diet.
The "bad" fats are those that are man-made, or require severe refining to get - soy, corn, cottonseed, canola, etc. None of those items can be turned into oil in the everyday kitchen. And of course anything that is not in the form it was created in - like hydrogenated liquid fats.
Peanut is one that falls into both categories for other reasons - peanuts are prone to toxic mold, and while you can make peanut oil in your kitchen, it's probably better to avoid it for toxicity reasons.
