Much attention has been placed on the negative association between trans fat intake and health/well-being. In 2006, the FDA required that trans fats be listed on food labels. Since that time many states have gone so far as to literally ban trans fat from foods served in restaurants. Just this month the FDA announced their plans to ban trans fats from processed foods over the next three years.
Answer the following questions in this discussion.
(1) How will banning trans fat eliminate health damage from fat intake?
(2) Can we assume that a food described on the label as trans fat free contains no trans fat?
