Massachusetts is now talking about banning trans fats. As someone who's looking to eat healthy, I'm not very impressed by this approach. Yes, it's nice to know that trans fats are being limited. But what I'd really like to see is a general labeling requirement so that I could tell what was in the food restaurants serve more generally. Trans fat isn't the only unhealthy component of food.
What I'd really, really like to see, though, is restaurants doing this on their own, to cater to health conscious customers. Whole Foods should open a restaurant chain.
