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.

    California bans trans fats

    It’s the first state to outlaw a vegetable oil.

    The governator has made it official. It will be hasta la vista to the use of oils, margarine, and shortening containing trans fats by all restaurants and other food-serving businesses by 2009.

    Exemptions include foods not made on-site that are served in their original packaging, and meat and dairy products.

    However, if you’ve ever dined in a California restaurant, you know that the wall placards clearly state the authorities are not responsible for the safety of anything you eat.
