Good. Now the next public health scares will be rancid vegetable oil and kitchen fires (hydrogenated oils have a longer shelf life and have a higher combustion point).

The banning of trans fats is a very good thing, and most vegetable oils are already slightly rancid by the time the bottle reaches the store shelves.

It always amazes me that few people have noticed that heart disease has rapidly increased within the US population as heat and solvent processed and hydrogenated vegetable oils have replaced butter, lard, and the healthful minimally processed vegetable oils of olive oil, coconut oil and palm oil.

Here is a wonderful article about the hazards of replacing healthy fats with trans fats and unhealthful vegetable oils.
