Oh, you're going to just love this one...
The AHA made clear their position on the proposed ban on trans-fats by New York City when Robert Eckle, President of the AHA, said the sudden removal of trans-fatty acids from restaurants is not a practical solution, telling heartwire that many individuals, from "field to mouth," are involved in the process and need to be consulted. He said the ban is unrealistic and unfairly punitive to the food and restaurant industry.
Say what? Those who make industrial trans-fatty acids need to be consulted?
But what can we expect from an organization that published the No Fad Diet, a book that recommends consumption of copious amounts of trans-fats as part of a heart-healthy diet?
