    Re: FDA Tells Food Industry to Phase out Artificial Trans Fats

    Would be nice to have transparency to food. Right now i read the backs of boxes and its just chemicalx, chemicalz, chemical-y and i dont comprehend any of it. I mean we have the internet so why not have a specific code on each brand and you can punch that code into a gov registered website that states EVERY single ingredient and exactly what its from and health risks.

    When I read food packages now I just assume its 85% industrial bi-product. Some percent filler. And just enough real nutrients to classify it as food.

    (wonder where cancer comes from.....)

    With 3-d printing and people making imitation food looking real more and more it has the potential to turn humans into living "waste reclyclers" where companies are just finding excuses and loopholes to shove as much stuff in the food that they dont want to pay to put in a landfill. I got a packet of peanuts and it took me a while to realize what was wrong with them. But they were MAN-CRAFTED peanuts. As in someone took artificial peanut paste and cooked it and forged it in a way to make it resemble 90% of a peanut. **** was weird.

    I dont wanna eat corn syrup boil out mixed with wood shavings and whats left after the making of jetfuel.

    I wouldnt be surprised if they use 50 different loopholes and reconsitancy procedures to turn aborted babies and expiring semen samples into frozen burritos.

    Yeah, it's all Greek to me. What the heck is "onion powder", and, "egg whites"? Nothing like a little histrionic hyperbole to bolster your argument.

    What about that little yellow packet of powder in the Mac N cheese box?

    “Easy” Mac Cheese Sauce Mix: Whey, Maltodextrin, Corn Syrup Solids, Palm Oil, Modified Food Starch, Milkfat, Salt, Milk Protein Concentrate, Medium Chain Triglyceride, Sodium Tripolyphosphate, Citric Acid, Sodium Phosphate, Natural Flavor, Lactic Acid, Calcium Phosphate, Guar Gum, Monosodium Glutamate, Yellow 5, Yellow 6, Artificial Flavor, Cheese Culture, Enzymes.

    When i read this crap I read "Cancer". lol 22 ingredients in 1 little cheese powder packet. Sounds legit.

    And why do you read cancer? Do you have some evidence that any of those things cause cancer? The sun causes cancer for crying out loud. Should the sun be required to list it's cancer causing ingredients on a "gov registered website"?

    Look, I'm obviously being a smart ass. There's no doubt that many food additives are not good for you, but that's no reason to exaggerate and be hyperbolic about it. If you're worried about the mac 'n cheese packet, don't eat it. Have you tried Annie's mac 'n cheese products? They're very good, and the ingredient list is a little more understandable.

    Re: FDA Tells Food Industry to Phase out Artificial Trans Fats

    Trans fats are bad for everyone, in any amount at all, at any age, for any sex, no matter the individual, period, and this is backed up with a mountain of peer reviewed evidence. If FDA is not going to ban Trans Fats, then what is the point of the FDA? Allowing trans fats in foods is like allowing dioxins in foods (this has actually happened in China). I don't think that blocking what are essentially toxic substances from foods is a nanny state action.

    Should the FDA ban all food ingredients that are bad for you?

    No, but they should ban any ingredients that are universally toxic to any and all human beings of which there is no safe amount to consume. Trans fats fit that description.

    There are lots of foods that are not good for you, take refined sugars, nitrates in cured meats and so on, but trans fats are on an entirely different level in terms of what they do to the human body - specifically our cardiovascular system.
