i don't think any food or ingredient should be banned unless it's blatantly bad for you (i.e. you eat it you die 4 hours later). people just need to be more educated. the g'ment makes prepackaged foods list all ingredients as well as fat content, sodium content, etc. the problem is most people don't know what it all means in relation to their health aside from general stull like "too much fat is bad". even then i don't know if it would help. people are just lazy slobs.

Not necessarily. They can switch their oils and *gasp* make halfway decent food

I'm not surprised this is happening in NYC. Now the Food Nazis can join with the Smoking Nazis to save us from ourselves.

At least the smoking bans have a somewhat reasonable basis for existing: secondhand smoke. But last time I checked, secondhand obesity is not possible.

I'm sure the rest of the world is laughing at the fact that our government has to treat its citizens like a little kid and make us eat healthy...

Exactly. Having a smoking section in a restaurant is like having a pissing section in a pool.

And I like to smoke, too.

Edit: I consider myself somewhat of a health nut and goddamnit on the rare occasion that I eat McDonald's I want those fries to be loaded with as much fat as physically possible.

That is quite possibly the most ridiculous idea ever. How are the homeless going to stay warm during blizzards if they don't have a couple inches of fat to keep warm?

Obesity isn't that bad a problem, either... I heard from a guy who heard from a guy (that's documentation right there) who said that by FDA standards, Tom Cruise is obese.

Ugh, except that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, costs the medical system an incredible amount of money, and much of heart disease is caused by poor diets/health...

Yeah I guess it's not that bad a problem. Kind of like how cancer is not that bad a problem.

When I eat at McDonalds, that's my choice. Why should the government get to regulate what a pirvately owned business put in their products. As long as they tell you the ingredients/nutritional facts, they should be allowed to put whatever the hell they want in there. Even if they want to put rat poison in the burgers, as long as they have a an easily visible sign cleary stating what's in there, I say let them do it.

If you think McDonald's is the reason people are fat, you need to pull your head out, and look around.
People choose what they eat. They choose to eat foods loaded with grease because they taste good. McDonald's is no different than going to a 5 start restaurant, and ordering a meal loaded with fat.
People make choices, they live, and die by those choices.
Now, here's a thought, instead of using the "Fat people cost the government money in health care" as a justification for it, how about we get government out of health care, and out of peoples everyday lives? Na, that would make too much sence.....

As long as the law comes with the right pictures, I'm in favor of it.

I live here and personal I think its a good idea. McDonalds and other major companys that can afford healthier oils so can the other guys. They use these bad oils because its more cost effective. Mind you I love Mickey D's but this wont be the first time they changed they're oil get over it. If people aren't smart enough to know that they aren't eating healthy foods that potentially can be killing them then someone should step in. Belive it or not you may notice difference at the beginning but soon after you'll forget about it. So it really doesn't matter.
Just my two cents.
