Mark Bittman explains that the U.S. government's belated effort to remove trans fats from the food supply is progressing too slowly:
- But partially hydrogenated oils have benefited no one except their manufacturers and the producers of the junk that includes them. And the three-year phaseout means more deaths from people consuming a substance that should have been taken off the market at least a decade ago. ...
- Once again it’s clear that too often the primary concern of government watchdog agencies is to protect corporate profits rather than public health.
