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.

    Louisville councilman proposes to ban trans fats

    Councilman Dan Johnson says he plans to file an ordinance to ban using trans fatty acids in 2,600 Louisville Kentucky eateries.

    Food chains that have recently decided to ban trans fatty acids from their foods on their own include the following.

    • Arby’s
    • KFC
    • Taco Bell

    Lots of others are listed on other entires on this blog.

    Also considering a ban are New York City and Chicago.

    NYC council members will vote on their proposal next week. The betting is it will probably pass, despite lobbying by McDonalds, Burger King, and others. McDonalds claims it would take them until 2008 to get the fat out. That’s one year longer than the NYC law permits.

    No Mcdonald fries for a year? I find that hard to believe.
