Trans fat panic



The American Council on Science and Health has a new report out on "Trans Fatty Acids and Heart Disease", cautioning against some of the hype spread on the topic by groups like the Center for Science in the Public Interest. The proposed New York City ban on restaurant use of the sinister lipids has overshadowed discussion of the companion proposal floated by Nurse Bloomberg's health department, namely compulsory calorie labeling in chain restaurants; the New York Times's Thomas Lueck has more on that problematic proposal. And Ken Shepherd of the Business and Media Institute was kind enough to mention me, quoting my comments on ABC Evening News, in an article on the subject late last month.
