ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a letter sent by the New York Health Department to all restaurants in New York City, urging them to stop serving foods that contain partially hydrogenated oil better known as trans fats, which health experts say increase the likelihood of heart disease. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says that there are no levels of trans fats that can be safely eaten without the risk of a negative effect on a person's health.
