    5 Foods That Could Become Illegal With FDA Move to Ban Trans Fats

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration just announced its preliminary determination that partially hydrogenated oil is no longer generally recognized as safe for use in food.
    The move paves the way for a ban, or at the very least, strict limits on the fake fats, which are the primary source of artificial trans fats in the diet.
    Artificial trans fats are formed when food makers turn liquid oils into solid fats in a process called hydrogenation. Hydrogenation increases a food's shelf life, but the science shows it also pumps the body full of artery-clogging fat.
    Although the agency said that the average consumption of trans fats has declined from 4.6 grams per day in 2003 to about 1 gram per day in 2012, FDA commissioner Dr. Margaret A. Hamburg said in a statement that further reduction would prevent more than 20,000 heart attacks and 7,000 new cases of coronary heart disease each year.

    Right, I guess baked fish it is. Wonder if the taste will be much different? I love butter. I now buy in made with olive oil and sea salt. I don't notice too much difference, altho there is some.

    I think that we will get aclimated to the new taste and I'm sure seasonings will reach a new high.

    I can handle some sardines too. Love them and get omega 3 oils there. There are so many ways to do healthy, but.....I love my fried fish, onion rings, sweet potato fries and baked potatoes, mustard, collards, turnip greens, hot water, Mexican and regular corn breeds, ox tails, fried chicken, steaks, barbecued anything.

    Can you tell I'm hungry? ..;)
