I [Heart] Butter

by Tom Bozzo

Trans fat turns out to be worse for you than good old saturated fat, says the Times.

Much of the problem, the story goes, is that trans fat has wonderful properties for highly processed foods, creating problems for manufaturers of margarines and fish sticks, as well as for fast food establishments who rely on its ability to be repeatedly reheated to keep their costs down.

However, we are food reactionaries who don't normally let that sort of stuff in the door, and are affected less than most. Crackers, essentially all of which use trans fats, are the biggest problem area. I'll have to figure out what the Owl's Nest uses for its fish fry, too.
