    Re: Burger King sued over Trans Fats

    How absurd. This nutrition advocacy group could do the citizens of the US much more benefit by educating them as opposed to suing a fast food chain (A lawsuit that is likely to fail IMHO). I have also heard on a few occassions that the oils that are replacing the trans fats are not really any healthier for us...Dr. Dean has commented about this for sure.

    I hope the judge tells the advocacy group counsel to get the hell out of his/her courtroom. I would.

    Yep....they need to start countersuing for frivolous lawsuits. IMHO I believe the person filing a silly lawsuit that is thrown out of court should have to pay the legal fees of the person they are suing!!

    My goal in life is to be as good of a person my dog already thinks I am.

    I'm all for that. If they can't pay the fine then they can do some jail time. Spend a few months in the county jail just for good measure.

    The best part was this quote - "Consumers have no way to guard against the risk of consumer trans fats."

    Um, they could always choose to eat at healthy restaurants or choose to eat healthy foods.

    Re: Burger King sued over Trans Fats

    Now, I must explain my rule about "Common Sense"......

    There is no such thing as "Common Sense"!!!!! As the name "Common" implies, it means.....well......common.....thus everybody should have it!!!! And we all know what the truth of that is!!!!!!

    So, in closing, it should heretofore be referred to as "Uncommon Sense"

    Questions? Comments? Snide Remarks?

    Re: Burger King sued over Trans Fats

    Just wondering if I make my own hamburgs from ground beef will they have transfats.

    I like french fries. I try to limit amount.

    Forget the cheese and ketchup.

    Just lettuce, tomatoes, onions, mustard and a slice of dill pickle.

    A meal made in heaven.

    Trans fats are made when oil is partially hydrogenated to make it more stable with heat and last longer. I think the majority of transfats come from french fries, maybe mayo. Beef by itself if just grilled should not have any transfats. It will have plenty of other fat, included saturated fat, but not trans fats.

    Beef aka steak also has a lot of cholesterol!!!
