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.

    NYC is first to ban trans fats

    According to WABC radio, New York City just passed the ban on using trans fats for cooking in NYC eateries.

    It is the first city in the US to do so.

    There’s a six-month grace period for replacing trans fat-containing cooking oils, shortening, and margarine for frying and for spreads. An 18-month grace period is allowed for adoption of alternatives in all other products, like pancake mixes and chicken nuggets, and for oils and shortening used for frying yeast dough.
