Danger — Trans Fats

leave a comment »

You may have heard a lot of experts praise the FDA for finally “banning” artificial trans fats.

Food companies make trans fat by pumping hydrogen into vegetable oils, which turns them into solids.

These fats have nothing to do with nature. Your body doesn’t even recognize them as nutrients.

And they’ve been linked to many chronic ailments, like obesity, heart disease and memory loss – to name just a few.

But the FDA has still given food companies three whole years to phase out all of their trans fats. Until then, they can use as much of these artificial fats as they want.

The FDA ordered all food makers to list the amount of trans fats in their foods on their ingredients labels.

But there is a catch. The companies can claim their products contain “0 trans fats” as long as they have less than 0.5g grams of the man-made fats per serving.

And with no guidelines, servings could be defined as two chocolate chip cookies, or 15 potato chips or just enough peanut butter for half of a sandwich.

But, as always, the devil is in the details. It’s very clear the agency is NOT planning a full ban at all.

The FDA should ban all trans fats from all food.

One speck of trans fat in any food should cause

—  a total recall of that food

—  prison terms for officers and directors(not in a country club prison)

—  free replacement food from another company(paid for by the officers and directors)

This will never happen.

Why?

The government does not care about your health.

How long are you going to allow corrupt government to endanger your family?

For your safety, avoid foods with trans fats.

Here is a good way to guesstimate the hidden trans fat in food…

Look on the label for the total amount of fat and then subtract the amount of saturated fat. The answer will come very close to the total amount of trans fats.

 

 

The facts no one wants to read.
