There is always a food scare going on.

Why do we have trans-fats? Because of the scare over fats such as lard and butter many years ago. But unlike what is happening today - the government didn't "ban" those other fats they let the market take care of it.

Now we have people living longer (because they don't die earlier of heart attacks because they were eating transfats instead of lard) and now we find that there may be issues with the replacement.

Sadly, like everything else posted about diet and health - they are only guessing. If any of this stuff was really bad, we'd all be dead by now.

Lastly... follow the money. Someone is making big bucks off this. This would be the primary reason for all the hoopla so suddenly.
