Med-Spot on Med-Source - Trans Fat

Med-Spot 5.17.07 - New York City Says Goodbye to Trans-Fat

New York City's ban on trans fats goes into effect this summer a full 17 years after the 1st studies were published that definitively showed that trans fat increases LDL & lowers HDL levels.

Overall the ban is a good thing however, as one chef indicated: "You can't fry in an unsaturated fat," said Canciello, who began working in the café three decades ago, when he was 14. "The food industry is a constant cycle," he said. Twenty years ago, "I baked with saturated fat, so I'm just going to go back." See the full update in the NEJM here.
