    a "frugal" neighbor with lots of savings, but a low retirement income, qualified for commodities, and gave us some peanut butter. One taste and it was trashed. Can't imagine how bad the "cheese" was....

    False statement is false:

    The agency announced its plans to act in 2013 and has since addressed more than 6,000 public comments. The decision Tuesday was final and would effectively remove industrial trans fats from the American diet by 2018, a change that the agency has estimated could prevent 20,000 heart attacks and 7,000 deaths from heart disease each year.

    The food industry said it was pleased that the agency had given it three years to carry out the rule, but also said it planned to seek permission to keep using small amounts of trans fats in certain products, an indication of just how difficult it is to root them out.

    Government also regulates how much arsenic is allowed in water. Should they just back off that for liberty's sake?
