I have to be honest, it's only recently that I've become aware of trans fats, and this was from the Food Programme a couple of weeks ago. They don't sound that kind to us. Out of choice, and because I prefer the taste, I've only ever eaten and cooked with butter, olive oil or lard, yet it seems to have been scientifically established some 20 years ago that hydrogenated vegetable fats are the worstest ever for our health. I don't watch the telly often these days, but when I did, almost every time the adverts came on, someone was trying to flog me margaine as a healthier substitute. It seems they've stopped doing this now, but these products are still being flogged and promoted by supermarkets. Our Government's opinion is that instead of banning them which takes yeras to implement, self-regulation within the food industry is more effective and points to the results that have been achieved. Is this good enough? Critics say the highest threats come from fast food outlets which fall outside the mainstream suppliers. I'm alright, Jack. I don't eat it though choice, and it's rare we dine on fast food, but as we know, many do. It seems quite ironic that Governments throughout the world were able to deal with the banning of smoking in public places on the grounds of passive smoking,despite allowing smokers to continue their habit and yet they turn a blind eye to the equal killer of trans fats.
