New York City just banned the use of trans fats in all food service establishments. Why? Why canâ€™t I eat trans fats? Donâ€™t get me wrong, I think trans fats are bad for you and I try not to have them. But I want to know why NYC disallowed me from eating trans fats when it still allows me to smoke (cigarettes are the only product ever marketed that when used as directed will kill you), eat aspartame (the most dangerous food on the market, drink fluoride (they actually put this rat poison in our drinking water) and wash (and brush my teeth) with sodium laureth sulfate and ammonium laureth sulfate (ALS/SLS will remove your protective lipids form your skin, absorb into your body and combine with other chemicals to form carcinogens.) I canâ€™t eat trans fats but they will trick me into eating genetically modified food without even telling me!
I know enough to eat well when I have the will power to do so. If you want to help my stay healthy how about keeping pollutants out of my breathing air and leave the menu selection to me!
