    They will no longer have "GRAS" status.

    Under the proposal, which is open for public comment for 60 days, the agency would declare that partially hydrogenated oils, the source of trans fats, were no longer “generally recognized as safe,”

    There goes the country crock

    I'm thinking this will significantly raise food prices.

    Trans-fats are used as a cheap way to increase shelf life of products, if they are eliminated companies will have to find another way which likely will cost more money...More money to produce the food, cost passed on to the consumers.

    That is a good point. Well i guess it is a good thing I dont eat a lot of canned boxed or frozen food. I mean I have noticed an increase in the cost of my "natural food" in general but I swear to god if they get rid of microwaved popcorn I am going to loose my god dam mind!

    They claim it will lower heart attacks. That's absolutely ridiculous. If people want to eat like crap and not take care of themselves, they are gonna do it, trans-fats or not.

    Its just those older docs...this countries system needs a few more docs who understand fitness and bodybuilding. What we don't need is more of a nanny state like banning trans fats because they are not safe but hey smoke up..4ad was banned because its dangerous yet its instantly sold as a drug fda approved ....</rant>

    When its really good the government steals it, and if another product comes along that competes with its theft they shut it down. They do they same with what they cant steal.
