Transfat != poison.
It's stabilised vegitable oil. The proccess that produces this causes certain types of fatty acids that make your LDS cholesterol raise more rapidly then some other types of common fat.
Since highten LDS cholesterol is associated with greater risk of heart disease then people assume that transfat causes heart disease... which isn't even nessicarially true.
All this 'poison' stuff is realy irritating. It should sound very familar:
There is no adverse effects from transfat in moderation. If you eat nothing but fast food then your health is going to go to shit, which is the whole target of this. Fast foods places use a lot of transfat, but you can't pass a law based on targetting specific types of businesses like that.. you wouldn't get away with it they'd lobby against you and stop it.
But you can't lobby against stopping 'man made poison'. It's the social engineers people trying to get people to eat less fast food.
I don't have a problem with that, but it should be taken care of through public education rather then subverting government to your own ends.
Banning isn't going to realy do anything. Fatty fast foods are still going to be just as unhealthy if they use other types of fat. It's just not a balanced diet. People are still going to become fat asses, not eat properly, and get no excerise weither or not their food uses one type of fat or another.
If you don't want to use cisco, then don't. Your better off without it.
