Trans Fat Ban Has Led To Healthier Fast Food Meals In NYC

The ban that New York City authorities introduced in 2006 to restrict use of trans fats in fast-food restaurants has led to residents eating healthier fast food meals that are substantially and significantly lower in trans fats. Also, those meals have not increased their saturated fat content to compensate.
But are PEOPLE healthier for it?

That remains unknown.
In an accompanying editorial, Alice Lichtenstein, a nutrition specialist at Tufts University, writes:

"The regulation may serve as a model for future successful public health initiatives."
Seems a bit premature to pat your own back.
