FDA Bans Trans-Fats Officially

It has been suspected for a while now that the FDA is going to ban trans-fats from all foods in the United States. Well, according to an article found on reddit and written by Grub Street, that is exactly what just happened. The FDA argues that using hydrogenated oils instead of real ones like butter are one of the reasons that many people get diseases, like heart disease, and ultimately lead to an untimely death.

Because of these health concerns, Qnet has now stated that these fake oils are no long safe for human consumption and they gave all food producers in the United States three years to eliminate the substances from their items. Apparently, some cities already have a ban on the stuff, like New York City when they did it back in 2006. It isn’t unheard of that this would happen, and as delicious as those foods can be despite the hazard to their health, we must keep in mind that this is in our best interest and for the safety of our future generations. It is not going to be bad but maybe it will help us live healthier and more free from the bad chemicals, and especially eliminate obesity which has been skyrocketing through the United States lately. It won’t be long before we need to do this anyway, because sometimes we just need a little push to be healthy.
