If the Government Can Ban Trans Fat...

...it can ban anything.

Yesterday the California legislature passed a law banning trans fats from restaurants across the entire state. They would also be banned from hospitals and "facilities with food-preparation areas."

The bill has been sent to the governor for signature.

A similar bill is pending in Massachusetts.

The slope here is so slippery it's downright scary. What's stopping the banning of fried foods, sugar, and more?

Trust me, if these laws take hold and aren't overturned, more bans are coming in the future.

Gosh. I'd kill for a glazed doughnut right about now.

I agree with you 100% Laura! This is getting out of hand now...where is it taking us - back to "1984" that's where!
