Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Disney says no to trans fats

    Now it’s official. The tipping point for trans fats has been reached.

    As Disney’s 10-year deal to promote its films through McDonald’s comes to an end, Mickey and Pluto will appear only with foods that meet limits for calories, fat, saturated fat, and sugar.

    Disney will lower trans fats in meals at US amusement parks by 2007 and from licensed foods by 2008.

    Background on trans fats can be read here. A list of companies that are banishing trans fats is available here. You’ll notice that McDonalds is not among them.
