Trans fats should be banned10th June 2009
A member of the Scottish parliament has launched a campaign to ban the use of fats associated with coronary heart disease.
If passed, the Bill by former GP Dr Richard Simpson, MSP, the Labour member for Mid Scotland and Fife, would ban shops and restaurants from selling food with more than 1% of trans-fatty acids. Trans-fats are chemically altered vegetable oils used to give processed foods a longer shelf-life and their use is linked to conditions such as stroke, diabetes and high cholesterol.
