Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog is intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Trans fat regulations take effect to day in NYC

    And compliance with the law is encouraging.

    According to an article in,

    • 83% of restaurants in New York City were not using trans fats for frying on June 1, a month before the July 1st deadline.
    • 57% of restaurants are complying with Phase II — no trans fats used for baked foods or prepared foods, and oils used to deep-fry dough or cake batter — which doesn’t take effect until next year.

    Sounds like it’s not that hard to change.
