FDA moves to ban trans fat to improve cardiovascular health

PCNA SmartBrief | Jun 18, 2015

The FDA this week gave U.S. food manufacturers three years to remove partially hydrogenated oil, or trans fat, from food, calling it generally unsafe for consumption. Scientific research has linked trans fat with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease. Acting FDA Commissioner Dr. Stephen Ostroff said the ban "is expected to reduce coronary heart disease and prevent thousands of fatal heart attacks every year." CNN (06/16)
