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.

    Crisco eliminates trans fat

    Did you know that when it debuted in 1911, Crisco, the queen (oops; sexist reference) of trans fat products, was hailed as a healthful alternative to butter and lard.

    Times have changed, and Crisco has eliminated trans fats from its formula.

    This doesn’t automatically mean it’s healthy. We’ll see if the change is for the better.
