Here is our comment to the HuffingtonPost article above:
We're so glad to have this ban on Trans Fat take effect in California, although too bad it will take until 2010 for it to kick in. We also believe that this ought to be legislated nationally, especially in school lunch programs where type 2 diabetes has become an epidemic!
We filmed a wonderful episode on Ann Cooper, the school lunch lady for Berkeley Unified School Systems, where she has completely turned around the diets for school children from K-12, including teaching the kids where their food comes from and how to eat more veggies and fruits.
The results are startling! After feeding kids healthier school lunches (sans Trans Fat and processed foods), the rate of A.D.D and & A.D.H.D dropped like a rock, grades went through the roof (with better attention spans and focus), and they've seen a complete turn around in childhood obesity (the key factor that contributes to type 2 diabetes in kids).
