Well then, I'm completely confused. Did you want to debate/discuss the article or just state your opinions and receive no response? It would be helpful to know for future reference.

I find your confusion confusing GG.

I am on this forum to discuss food.

Aren't you?

It makes no difference to me where we live. But it does matter to me what we eat.

This is a food forum. Therefore I have opinions on food. And food is firmly related to health. (In my opinion).

I cannot quote a list of scientific research to prove the link between food and health, but since people tend to die without food, I think the link between the two is fairly obvious.

Why do you seem to be angry?

You asked me what I thought about the article and stated several opinions. I answered you and asked a few questions. Then you said you were stimulating debate. I said that's what I thought we were doing - debating. Then you said you were not involved in the debate. That was confusing. And I don't understand why you seem to be angry.

Please remember the "be nice" clause in the Community Rules.

The caution flag is out on this thread.

I think it's a good thing. It's one less thing to ask about in a resto. It's not like banning artificial trans fats will stop anyone from eating fried foods. It just won't be as unhealthy.

So that would mean original Crisco will be a thing of the past.

Do diabetics mean I can't have a 13oz soda (we know 12 oz ones are completely fine).

Industry = bottom line. That is the way it is. You do have choices, even unhealthy ones. That is what freedom is supposed to be, not being nannied into being "good"
Nope. You can eat anything you want to. I don't care. It is your choice. And as far as the soda goes, even diabetics can have them. The artificial sweeteners in diet drinks really mess up the system and plays havoc with the insulin, injection or pills.

I hope you never have a heart attack or open heart surgery. Neither one is fun.

I have a can of Crisco and it is only half used. I usually reach for the bottle of oil instead of the Crisco. They stand side by side on the shelf. No reason, just that it is easier to use. My small hands can't just grab the can like it can the bottle. I suppose I should use it up before it becomes illegal.

About time.

It has absolutely nothing to do with being nannied - it's about removing a known toxic substances from food.

Remember when DDT was all the rage?

I think they already changed it.
