FDA to ban artery-clogging trans fats

Major Chicago-area food companies Kraft Foods, Mondelez International, Hillshire Brands and McDonald’s Corp. said Thursday they are studying the details — and no doubt, the implications — of the federal government’s first-ever declaration that trans fats are unsafe and should be banned from many foods.


Funny, marijuana is becoming legal so munchies are going to become illegal. I agree with John Stefanos and will be supporting his product to let him know I like what he said "“(The federal government ) is going a bit too far; it’s up to the individual,” said John Stefanos, president of Chicago-based Cupid Candies at 7637 S. Western Ave., which makes one-pound boxes of three-layered mint Frango’s for local Macy’s stores. “Are you going to stop eating red meat? That’s my personal opinion.”

Eat right, exercise daily

die anyway.

Goverenment did something right for once ?

Did hell freeze over ?

By the way Trans Fats aren't found in nature, and we don't have the enzymes to break them down properly, neither do bacteria... they're seen as Xenobiotics to the body. We might as well eat plastic.

well for the FDA, I guess even a broken clock tells the correct time twice a day.

I called my local NPR yesterday

They were doing a segment on this nonsense. They put me on air. Their mistake.
