I don’t like trans fat. I think it is unhealthy and should be avoided. I am glad that companies have been abandoning it and soon will stop using it.
But I’m not deluded enough to think that the Food and Drug Administration is my friend. And I don’t think having a dictator of food safety for over three hundred million people is a path to safety.
Yet that is what our media takes for granted. The Politico headline is typical: “It’s official: Obama axes trans fat.” The words sound as if the Constitution gives the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces the authority to monitor all eating within the territory of the United States.
But I have to give credit to Politico. They make it clear to anyone with a brain which lobby is getting paid off for their support.
