Trans Fat Hearing is Heated

The Trans fat hearing held today at the Department of Health was heated. More on this tomorrow but a belated mention should be given to the Associated Press story in today's NY Sun that mentions the Alliance's complaints about the availability of Trans fat alternatives.

In addition, the NY Times has a front page story in its Metro Section on the other issue before the Health Department-the nutritional information on menu requirement. It appears that the Department doesn't really grasp how the sheer volume of information that it is requiring would make menus so voluminous as to make them impractical to even use.
