Trans Fats Ban in New York
By Erin Hollingsworth
December 2006

The New York Board of Health voted to minimize the presence of trans fats in New York restaurants and eateries, all-but completely banning them by June of 2007. The negative buzz surrounding trans fats and their apparent negative impact on human health has finally come to a head, resulting in unprecedented governmental action. Chicago too has taken steps to regulate and eventually ban a food item, foie gras. In the current environment of heightened food and restaurant industry awareness among the masses, these bans have sparked much controversy in Chicago, New York and all over the country. Where do you stand?
