    Again, why are they banning it? To stop people from eating it. Keep up with sophistry, its the only thing you've got since reality says otherwise.

    Yeah, sure.

    Because it's harmful.

    Trans fat is in many foods, so the FDA can't stop people from eating it. They can stop food producers from adding it to foods.




    Yeah, sure.
    I accept your surrender on this point

    Actually, there is but please stop trying to derail the thread. The govt does have the power to regulate interstate commerce, and to protect lives, and nothing in the constitution suggests that the commerce clause is limited to situations based on price.

    Do people not have the right to harm themselves?

    Relax, libertarians!

    You are not having trans fats made illegal. You're welcome to hydrogenate all the oil you want and consume it at will. In fact, I encourage you do do this and distribute this Freedom Oil to all off your libertarian friends.

    I hope you all get to taste the sweet fat of freedom in large quantities for as long as you and your coronary endothelium can take it.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Shall the FDA, then, cease their confirmation of food safety so you can consume whatever you want?

    In smaller quantities, and those aren't being banned. So you're ok with this now, right?

    You're talking as though the FDA is going to decree that nobody can ever consume any amount of trans fats in any product. That simply isn't true. You're inflating the issue.
