New York will become the first city in America to ban artificial fat from food sold to the public. Let's hope other cities follow their lead.

New York bans trans fats
Article in the Telegraph


"The ban, which comes into force on Tuesday, extends to almost all prepared food in restaurants, bakeries, cafeterias and even hot dog and pretzel stands.

Caterers will be given a three month grace period to comply before facing a $2,000 (£1,000) fine.

Trans fats are a type of unsaturated fat which is partially hydrogenated to give it a higher melting point, extending its shelf life and making it useful for baking."
