FDA wants to ban trans-fats.

FDA wants to ban trans-fats.

IT CAN BE FOUND IN THINGS LIKE FRENCH FRIES-- DESSERTS-- AND EVEN PIZZA.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TRANS FAT-- AND NOW THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION IS TAKING STEPS TO COMPLETELY REMOVE IT FROM THE U-S FOOD SUPPLY SAYING IT'S 'NOT SAFE.'

DOCTORS HAVE WARNED FOR QUITE SOME TIME --EATING FOOD THAT CONTAIN TRANS FAT CAN INCREASE YOUR RISK FOR HEART DISEASE AND OTHER MEDICAL PROBLEMS.

ACCORDING TO THE FDA...NOT ONLY ARE FOODS THAT CONTAIN TRANS FAT NOT SAFE-- THEY ARE ALSO NOT NECESSARY.

SOME SAY TRANS FATS DO ALTER THE TASTE, AND INCREASE SHELF-LIFE, BUT MANY FAST FOOD PLACES LIKE MCDONALDS HAVE ALREADY STOPPED USING THEM ANYWAY.

THE COMPANY'S WEBSITE SAYS ALL OF ITS FRIED MENU ITEMS ARE FREE OF TRANS FAT.

BUT THAT WON'T NECESSARILY MAKE FOOD HEALTHIER.

RIGHT NOW THE F-D-A HAS OPENED A 60 DAY "COMMENT PERIOD" TO GET MORE INFORMATION.

AFTER THAT-- IF THIS PLAN IS FINALIZED--- IT COULD TAKE LESS THAN A YEAR TO COMPLETE.
