Despite the link to heart disease associated with trans fats, I don't think banning them will do much to improve the healthiness of Americans. All the processed pastries and greasy foods will still be unhealthy with or without trans fats. At least in my area, it's already not very prevalent due to all the buzz surrounding its health issues, so a ban wouldn't have much impact.

Reforming agriculture policy would do more to curb obesity. The billions of dollars that go into corn and soybean subsidies are a big reason why unhealthy processed foods are so widespread and cheap. Isn't it weird that the poorest people here are also the most obese?
