that is about the grossest generalization I’ve ever seen.
It makes the assumption that simply because one is against this type of government involvement, they are not privy to information on trans fats.
What a huge error and doesn’t follow logically either.
The difference between the red dye and the transfats is HOW the government is handling itself. The government is not outlawing transfats, in fact, transfats are still available in grocery stores throughout America.
What the government IS doing, is telling businesses what legally distributed food products they can and cannot use. Which is ludicrous.
No one has stated that transfats should be used. Since transfats are bad all around and do nothing to improve flavor and are not any cheaper to buy than other oils, it seems silly to keep them around. But, what we have stated is that the government should not be banning a legal and FDA approved ingredient from one demographic – the restauranteur.
I think this sort of government involvement is bad and it is extremely costly if the government plans to irradicate the substance in this fashion.
Instead, lets have the FDA recind its approval (like they did with the red dye) and make the substance not fit for human consumption. This will essential stop the sale of this product for everybody – not just one group of people.
