    Some of the dim libs want government control over everything they eat, unlike prosperous countries like China where it’s acceptable to put white paint into milk cartons and sell it as milk, with the emptors being responsible to caveat for themselves. That’s what the US needs to regain prosperity: no government regulations at all! That would make all the good Randists happy.


    (Of course, if the loony left had its way, it would be illegal to sell white paint in cans marked ‘White Paint’, since someone might accidentally mistake it for milk and try to drink it.)

    You say “I agree!”
    You totally misunderstood Michael’s comment.

    One of our greatest health problems and financial problems is cardiovascular disease and the money spent treating it. The research over the last few decades is very solid. It shows that trans- fats ( partially hydrogenated fats and oils) contribute to cardiovascular disease. This ban on trans fats is long overdue. The so-called “free market” cannot handle problems like this. People have always had some cardiovascular disease. If you eat margarine containing trans fats for twenty years and then have a heart attack, does that mean you will stop eating trans fats? Some things are best done by private entrepeneurs, but food safety should be one of the most important realms of government. We should probably feel bad that our government has been pressured by agribusiness corporations to do less food safety when it should do more.

    And this is where you just don’t get it.

    I’m fine with tofu burgers and I LOVE broccoli. BUT, I don’t require that anyone else eat them at all. Unless they WANT to.

    Oh yeah, i can cook a mean tofu burger but I very rarely eat one. I prefer my red meat and I want it to bleed.

    But liberals seem to want to force people to “do wants good for themselves” no matter want they want.

    crazy…

    If people don’t kill themselves then how will we be able to afford all those centenarians who will be clogging up the fast food drive thrus?

    I’ve been away for almost a year and people still don’t know how to read Michael wme’s comments.

    And you know what, fewer people eating trans-fats = fewer heart attacks = my insurance premiums might go down.

    I hate it when governments want to protect their citizens.

    Burger King in the UK used to make a great bean burger…and their thick shakes were nice, too. I use rice milk (I’m not a vegetarian) as dairy clogs up my throat.
    .
    If I was given a choice of meat over veg. I’d choose veg – I wish I knew how to combine things so I could make the switch.

    You’re talking a load of BO**OCKS. I’m not a socialist; and I suggest that you grow up and join the real world. It’s my mouth and I’ll put what I like into it.

    If a 400 lb man cornered me, I’d make his flesh wobble for so long, he’d be unable to move.

    By the way…you can’t spell “flattener”.

    You’ve missed the point oh obtuse one. Your diet is a personal choice. BTW, Tofu is an unhealthy choice, there are better options.

    Your brain has been pierced by the hammer and sickle. Read the writings of the founders, both federalist and anti-federalist. You will find that you have missed the mark.

    ADRIAN SNARE said “We should be glad that our government is trying to do something…. Where our government falls flat is “self-promotion” or advertising…….which, at this time, IMO, should NOT be allowed…”

    As usual, you have this completely back-asswards.

    If appropriate, the government should be using Public Service Announcements (PSAs), otherwise known as "self-promotion’ or “advertising” to educate the population. Not instituting more Government Mandates.

    EEPATT said " If you eat margarine containing trans fats for twenty years and then have a heart attack, does that mean you will stop eating trans fats?"

    The only reason people have been eating margarine for the past 20 years is because “experts” told them butter was unhealthy. The “experts” were wrong, and the problem you describe is the inevitable “unintended consequence”.

    BRUCE said " I prefer my red meat and I want it to bleed."

    Funny you should mention this. I just read an article that the “red” in “red meat” isn’t blood. Most of the blood in meat is removed during slaughter. The “red” is a protein called myoglobin, very similar to its cousin, hemoglobin, that stores oxygen in red blood cells. Just thought I’d pass this on.

    The Red Juice in Raw Red Meat is Not Blood
