A great move by FDA to improve public health. Eating a diet rich in trans fat is linked to higher body weight, heart disease and memory loss. Phasing out trans fats will reduce coronary heart disease and prevent thousands of fatal heart attacks every year. Artificial trans fat will soon disappear from the American diet, and a healthier food supply will contribute to good health. FDA should also aim at providing more transparency so the public can be aware of any potentially harmful chemicals in their food.

I don’t know doc, I have to question your diagnostic skills. Exactly how does one “sound” overweight. On the other hand, it’s extremely
easy, even for a layman, to spot a bully. Tell me, do you treat people in y our line of work? If so, please identify yourself and where you practice…so we all can be sure to avoid you. Oh, and doc, when was the last time you wrote or even spoke in a “foreign” language?
(I notice, it took you 2 times to get your own comment right…)

The move crate more energy, in all the conditions from our body, in winter most the people gain few pounds and is obios that the weather is cold and the body takes time to warm up and most of case we encourage to stay home… i hope my idea dont disturbed any information that the school and other sources are creating. We eat what we want, the food is there is up to every one to chose the food we like.
