I also think transfats are truly bad, but I sure do find myself siding with with MilwFoodlovers on this one, who put it so well:
"The Libertarian in me wins out. Trans fats are deadly and hidden but this is such a slippery slope that I see it leading to the banning of bacon and eggs. Can we get a compromise in that such information is prominently posted so that every customer knows what they are ordering and can make their own choices?"
But here’s another thought… I’m thinking that Health Commissioner Thomas Frieden wants exactly this, wanted it in the first place, and knows that if he presses for the complete ban, he can "fall back" to this. It’s a good strategy.
