Betty Crocker -- The Widow Maker
These products, pictured above, from Betty Crocker, a household name for decades, contain minute traces of trans fats. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's latest proposals, either the trans fats will be removed or these products will be prohibited in the United States.
According to the label for the frosting, there's 1.5 grams of trans fat per two teaspoons. The brownie box label says there's .05 grams of trans fat per serving. As the FDA sees it, the slightest consumption of these products will kill you.
Meantime, bacon, high in fat and cholesterol, remains good for you. That's because the FDA has yet to eliminate it from the American diet.
But if they're successful with Betty Crocker, bacon's next -- and so's your cheeseburger, your pizza and anything else you happen to enjoy.
As the FDA sees it, you're a dog -- too stupid to manage your own diet.
