Maybe this will help wake up the 60% of obese Americans, when they know how much horrible fat they're eating.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://biz.yahoo.com/rb/030709/health_fat_1.html" target="_blank">http://biz.yahoo.com/rb/030709/health_fat_1.html</a><br><br><br><br><br><br>
It goes on to say that trans fats, which cause artery clogging cholesterol, come from animal sources.<br><br><br><br>

I'm moving this to In the News.<br><br><br><br>
Want to add- trans fats are already included in the list of total fats, just not individually. You have to subtract the total of the saturated and unsaturated from the total fat to find out transfats.<br><br><br><br>
Also want to mention, there are many reasons for obesity, and I haven't heard trans fats to be particularly worse for weight gain than any other fats.

As much as I would like to believe that this will help out the obese American popoulation, I doubt it will. I think it will help out the small percentage of the population that is concerned with their health but is unknowingly consuming all these fats.

I'm sure you're right. People who are fat will probably stay fat, no matter how fat they are or unhealthy they feel.<br><br><br><br>
Sorry 'bout posting this in the wrong place.<br><br><br><br>
SAD is so sad. (Standard American [garbage] Diet) I do think it's good to have to display Trans Fats separately on labels, though. A step in the right direction.
