The problem is that is nothing natural on the trans fat substitutes actually this look more to me like a take over or move over to promote manufactured fat that actually are still dangerous to human consumption.
This no about replacing trans fat with natural fats this about a way to promote more manufacturing junk in the basis that is healthier for you.

I actually think this trend (which started several years back in NY) is going to make a Dramatic difference in the USA
I can correlate the lowering of American educational performance directly with the rise of fast food year by year...
If Trans fat can clog the Arteries in your HEART, generally about the size of your thumb... what about the smaller ones running from your neck to your BRAIN, what about the capillaries IN your Brain...
A Fatty clogged circulatory system will absolutely, positively make you a freaking Idiot over time, probably starts when your really, really young too...
I completely think American general public stupidity and dietary change went hand in hand...
May they next CLOSE down 90% of the fast food industry, an American rise to a better nation can only follow...

So you are saying that everyone who is in good shape is smart and anyone that is fat is a retard? The real reason why our educational performance is so low is because our eductional system SUCKS and NOT because people are fat.

Like another poster said, it is the cummulative effects that are so potentially devestating to the body. Since it takes such a long time to figure it out, (or so they say) they are trying to remedy the problem.
It's a good thing, and not at all in favor of manufacturers. It's in favor of the people, for once.

How is it nannying removing something that shouldn't be there in the first place?
Instead of viewing it as nannying, maybe it should be: keepoing restaurants from being cheap and using less then desired prodcuts to save costs at the health expense of people.
I guess I don't so much mind being old, as I mind being fat and old.

not every "fattie" eats garbage, and not every stickperson eats healthy...
and actually obesity rates go UP the farther DOWN the economic scale.
