FDA BANS TRANS FATS and gives 3 years for manufacturers to comply!!!*

June 24, 2015

 

Doctors, dieticians, anti-aging experts and health and wellness experts around the world have been waving a red flag about the dangerous effects of Trans Fats.

Trans Fats have been on just about everyone’s HIT LIST for a very long time, including mine!

 

 

FINALLY, the FDA has taken action and given food manufacturers 3 years to remove this deadly substance from all manufactured food.

 

Tuesday, June 16, 2015 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that trans fat is to be banned from all foods. The FDA ruled that trans fat is not “generally recognized as safe” for use in human food.

 

WHAT TOOK THEM SO LONG????? And we have been eating Trans Fats for how long now????

 

 

Although the companies can petition the FDA for special license to use it, still none of the artificial trans fat can be added to human food.  

 

Going against the FDA ruling risks huge sanctioned by the FDA.

 

The FDA has taken this step to eliminate bad fats from our food. A specific source of trans fats is partially hydrogenated oils, or PHOs, which the FDA rules out —has no safe level of consumption. According to Dr. Stephen Ostroff’s comments with CNN, this decision has come to be because of the agency’s determination and commitment to heart health of all Americans. Quoting Dr. Ostroff: “this action is expected to reduce coronary heart disease and prevent thousands of fatal heart attacks every year.”
