June 16, 2015, the FDA announced partially hydrogenated oils (a primary source of trans fat) will no longer be allowed in food unless authorized by the agency due to its health risks.
In Dr. Mercola’s article today, I found out that the FDA banned Partially hydrogenated Vegetable oil (wow, what a switch). The driver here is it is the real culprit in trans fats in our diet. Crisco was invented in 1911.
Trans fats were banned in New York a few years ago. Grass Finished beef has trans vaccenic acid (a natural trans fat). If you ingest this natural trans fat, it helps convert some of the linoleic acid (Omega 6) to CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) in our stomach. CLA is twenty times as powerful as Omega 3’s in preventing and curing cancer (or so the animal studies say)!!!
We need to get rid of GMO’s in under 100 years or GMO’s might get rid of us.
On July 23, 2015, the US House of Representatives passed HR 1599,1ironically misnamed “The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act”2,3,4 more commonly referred to as the “Deny Americans the Right to Know” or DARK Act.
Despite heavy opposition, the measure was approved 275-150.
The “DARK” Act (HR 1599) specifically preempts states’ rights to create their own GMO food labeling laws and, if passed by the Senate, will effectively blockVermont’s GMO labeling law, set to take effect in 2016.
This is a significant blow to Americans’ right to truthful and transparent information about the food we eat, and Republican dissention in the Senate is our last hope to put a stop to this latest and most monstrous incarnation of the “Monsanto Protection Act.”
Pro-GMO Forces Spent Nearly $64 MILLION on Lobbying This Bill to Pass the House
Looks like Kathleen Hart’s book “Eating in the Dark” is prophetic
