Big news in the world of health and wellness recently. The FDA has officially turned on trans fats.
If you’re unfamiliar, it’s the stuff in frosting, microwave popcorn, and non-weird peanut butter. It’s basically anything that uses the term “partially hydrogenated.”
The FDA says food companies have three years to phase it out of their products.
You can use this news in one of two ways.
1. Stop buying products with trans fats NOW because it’s officially (per the FDA) worse than something that will make you obese. It’s unsafe.
2. Stop buying products from Big Food companies because it’s clear they are socially irresponsible and don’t care about you or our world and will surely find a similarly effective yet currently legal alternative to trans fats to put into their products and appease shareholders.
Either way, it’s a good day.
