Trans Fatless Baltimore

There was an article on Baltimore recently stating how the city had banned trans fats. I have mixed feelings about it.

Of course trans fats are horrible and everyone should be avoiding them like the plague…. it’s just the whole… “let’s get the government to step in and ban something else” mentality that bothers me. If people were educated as to what they are putting in their mouth then they wouldn’t be buying ‘foods’ that contain trans fat. If people are not buying foods that contain trans fat then there is no money to be made producing foods that contain trans fat and therefore the market takes care of getting rid of trans fat. But alas, people are ignorant. We are all like sheep sometimes ay. I just don’t trust government as the shepherd.
