A statewide ban on artery-clogging trans fat lost its biggest potential roadblock yesterday when the leading association of restaurateurs told legislators it will not fight the measure.
I am all for banning Trans Fats from restaurants and grocery stores alike, but only if that means all the flavor from the food is brought back. Crap, according to wikipedia any food that contains partially hydrogenated oils has trans fat. So basically every thing I eat has trans fat.
Pancakes? Yes. Waffles? Yes. Cake? Yes. Milk? Yes. Deep fry oils? Oh yeah. Fast Food including fries? Oh Oh Yeah. Snack Foods? Yes.
Mostly everyday I either have waffles or cake for breakfast so let's say that is close to 1/4 of my daily consumption of food. Deep fried stuff and fast food? On some days that can take up 2/4 of what I eat. Snacks, milk? That's the other 1/4. So yeah, all trans fat. If they all of a sudden banned all of these hazardous fats (with the exception being milk, because that Trans Fat is present naturally) then my risk for coronary heart disease would be greatly reduced.
