Banning trans fats will do nothing to improve health since the food companies can still hide it in products under different labels such as "artificial flavoring" and the like. This amounts to nothing more than increased regulation of private businesses and will create new spies in our local Mom and Pop kitchens. Besides, the food companies and government knew since the 70s that trans fats were causing heart attacks (not saturated fats from dairy, meat or bananas and nuts). All you'll get from this Devoid Administration is more regulation on your life. Period.

You are both (both previous posts) ignorant and wrong. So sad that you can post such ignorant trash. Yeah i can see it now, the FBI will be sending secret spys to small restaurants. God you two are pathetic. BTW, how much do you weigh? Oh nevermind, just a rhetorical question, because I already know the answer.
Again, you debunkers resort to personal attacks. You are nothing more then a big-government loving Socialist.
