Sprinkles to Be Banned by FDA

Not even Stalin’s tyranny would have banned the sprinkles kids like on ice cream (assuming you could find any sprinkles or any ice cream in a communist country). But Obama’s tyranny would. Sprinkles, you see, contain politically incorrect trans fats:

Early next year, the FDA is expected to finalize a new regulation intended to eradicate even trace amounts of partially hydrogenated oils, known as trans fats, from our diets.

Even sprinkles will be included. Never mind that there is zero evidence that trans fats have any negative impact on the health unless consumed in excessive quantities.

Food producers and restaurants have already cut down on trans fats to the point that they no longer pose even a slight risk to public health. But this isn’t about our health; it is about control as an end in itself.

At this juncture, it bears repeating that a large reason trans fats used to be so prevalent in our diets was due to the activism of the food nannies at Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI). The left-wing food scolds, most famous for its reports on “calorie bomb” food entrees, pushed restaurants and food companies to switch to trans fats in the 1980s and 1990s.

The CSPI now lobbies to ban the very trans fats it wanted to impose. As with global cooling/global warming/climate change, the “experts” have no clue. All they know is they like bossing people around.

Sprinkles
Nothing is too trivial for Big Government to suppress.

    No, this is our fault now. We see the train coming but we’re not jumping off the tracks.

    We have to bloody their noses. We need to say “NO” so loud they will go deaf. We need to let them know that they, in fact, HAVE NO CONTROL. Not without a fight. Not without cost…to THEM.

    It is our country. You work for us. You are FIRED.

    If we don’t stand up now, we never will.

    I’m not hopeful.

    Consider this: how many of those cones would one have to eat to get ANY significant amount of trans-fat from the sprinkles? Think maybe by that time, the fat and calories from 75 ice cream cones might be more of a problem?

    I’m glad to see the FDA has thought this all out.

    (Can you believe we’re talking about, you know, SPRINKLES? This isn’t micro-managing, it’s electron microscope micro-managing.)

    This may relate…
    “Today, Americans consume just 1.3 grams of trans fats a day, around 0.6% of total caloric intake. No research has shown this level of consumption to pose any risk.”

    How can this be?!? If they ban transfats and people start losing weight, they’ll essentially contribute to global coolwarmingchange because when you lose weight all that fat is given off as CO2
