Working For You

Last night I heard a news story on the BBC World News.  The American Food and Drug Administration has finally decided to ban artificially-created transfats from the food chain.  These fats were a major part of our food industry until very recent steps to reduce their use.  Cheaper than mixing liquid oil and  thick fats, companies hydrogenated the liquid oil to change its characteristics.  But at a significant cost to our health....

According to the newsflash, the ban will save 7,000 American lives every year and prevent 20,000 heart attacks.

Will the UK do the same?  I’m asking our Lib Dem peers to look at this.
