[preamble]Under the guise of “unsafe”, the FDA – aka the government, determines whats good for us – is not extending the FDA control over our foods linked to our health insurance costs? They CAN make illegal ANY foods the government determines are “no good” for us.

The Food and Drug
Administration today took a step toward potentially eliminating trans fats from
the food supply with a preliminary determination they are no longer
“generally recognized as safe.”
Trans fats are found in a variety of frozen, canned and baked processed foods.
Partially hydrogenated oils are the major dietary source of trans fats in
processed food. Trans fats have been linked to an increased risk of heart
If the preliminary determination is finalized, according to the FDA, then
partially hydrogenated oils will become food additives subject to premarket FDA
approval. Foods with unapproved additives cannot legally be sold.
