    The Food and Drug Administration on Thursday took a first step toward potentially eliminating most trans fat from the food supply, saying it has made a preliminary determination that a major source of trans fats -- partially hydrogenated oils -- is no longer "generally recognized as safe."

    While food manufacturers and restaurants have voluntarily lowered the trans-fats in the last ten years, that's not enough for the FDA and other food nannies. Some of the common foods affected will be donuts, crackers, popcorn, frozen pizza, creamers, and canned frosting.

    CNN notes that the Center for Science in the Public Interest has been pushing a campaign to get the FDA to prohibit trans fats for a long time now. This is a strange twist - CSPI was one of the groups that, in the 1980s, pushed American consumers to substitute trans fats in their diet for saturated fats.

    Say it isn't so, your kidding me? What do you think about this? Shouldn't people regulate their own diets? What do you think this will do to the restaurant and food manufacturers?
    Can you show me where in that article they actually show anyone from the FDA proposing a ban? It seems all they have done is say it's not considered "generally safe" or whatever. The only area I see concerning bans is where the author apparently is fear mongering.

    Thanks.

    Its actually a prelimiinary recommendation, not a ban.

    They will then study the issue a bit more and gather competing testimony from scientists and manufacturers as to why the recommendation should not be made permanent. This is (I think ) a 60 day window. Its usually a formality - with data this strong, this wont be overturned. The next step is a final recommendation to remove trans fats from the GRAS (Generally recognized as safe) list, which becomes part of the FDA regulations, which is functionally a ban.

    They were reporting on what all the MS Media New sources reported concerning the FDA and from what the FDA stated themselves. Nov 7th 2013.

    Would you prefer Local, AP or Huff-Po? Wait, here is Reuters.....

    FDA seeks to ban trans fats in processed foods due to health risks



    FDA seeks to ban trans fats in processed foods due to health risks | Reuters

    The Food and Drug Administration on Thursday proposed banning artificial trans fats in processed food ranging from cookies to frozen pizza, citing the risk of heart disease

    At the other end of the food chain, the American Soybean Association said that seed and technology companies have developed soybean varieties rich in high oleic fatty acids that eliminate the need for partial hydrogenation. "Significant quantities" of such high oleic soybean oil should be in the marketplace by 2016, the group said.

    The FDA's proposal is subject to a 60-day public comment period in which food companies are expected to outline how long they expect it to take them to reformulate products.....snip~

    Nope. It's simple. If I'm paying in, that makes me a stakeholder. You don't get my money for free.

    If it affect frozen Pizza.....do you think it will affect Pizza joints that put their products out in grocers? Donuts and Canned Frosting too. That's a lot of Choccy yum yums. Besides have you ever smeared frosting on a woma.....uhm Well, That Sucks!
    Why can't those common foods get by without trans fats? There are plenty of cis and saturated fats that aren't nearly as devastating on ones health.

As I said before I believe it is quite specific it what the government may do and even more so what it may not. The Constitution only applies to people in ancillary way.
    Dude, I'm aware of who the Constitution is for. Come on, let's not stay at an elementary level here and argue points such as those.
    What I was attempting to illustrate is that the Constitution, as it was intended to be, is a document that isn't a hard set of rules but more guidelines. The second amendment, for example, could have been interpreted in one of the other manner's in which I explained. However, it was not (thank God) and here we are.
    Another example is the "separation of church and state". That is nowhere in the Constitution. It is an interpretation by Thomas Jefferson that was used at the Supreme Court to establish further clarification and interpretation of the 1st Amendment. If the Constitution were a rule book, we wouldn't need Supreme Court hearings on the validity of the "individual mandate" in the ACA. It would be black and white case.
    I get where you're coming from in that there are certain portions and verbiage in Constitution that is crystal clear. I got that. All I am saying is that most of it is not crystal clear. It requires us as human beings to exercise good judgement when applying the words of it to our government. Like I said earlier, we have failed in this task.
    “Mr. Speaker, I once again find myself compelled to vote against the annual budget resolution for a very simple reason: it makes government bigger.” ― Ron Paul
    Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of Liberty. – Thomas Jefferson

    Hiya RC. I think they can.....also if they do. They might not last as long in a grocery tho. Which I wouldn't see that as a problem.
