We should have banned it a long time ago. Trans fat came on the scene just before the rate of ppl getting heart diseases rose. Heart attacks were not common until trans fats were put in our foods to preserve them longer. Trans fats have killed more americans than guns, cars, cigarrettes, or war in the last 50 years. The FDA only requires that food products list the amount they have, and if a serving has under .5g of trans fat, it can be listed as having 0 trans fat. Anyone else agree that trans fats are killing people at an amazing rate?
