Trans Fats Ban in New York By Erin Hollingsworth December
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?
