Default FDA to ban trans fats

Thanks to Babs for the find.

FDA to ban artery-clogging trans fats

http://news.yahoo.com/fda-ban-artery...141214164.html

Quote:
The FDA announced Thursday it will require the food industry to gradually phase out artificial trans fats, saying they are a threat to people's health. Commissioner Margaret Hamburg said the move could prevent 20,000 heart attacks and 7,000 deaths each year.

Hamburg said that while the amount of trans fats in the country's diet has declined dramatically in the last decade, they "remain an area of significant public health concern." The trans fats have long been criticized by nutritionists, and New York City and other local governments have banned them.

I wonder how long it will be before the UK does the same or whether they'll do it at all.

Some of the best food I have ever tasted is filled with trans fats, and is cooked in the back room of a gas station.

I agree that artificial trans fats are bad - I disagree with any government mandate. Too much government - wwe cannot regulate, everything.
