Statement of National Alliance for Hispanic Health on FDA Move to Eliminate Artificial Trans Fats
WASHINGTON, June 16, 2015 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — “The FDA today has shown it is the nation’s consumer health protection agency. The FDA’s action to end use of artificial trans fat is essential to improve our health. Taking artificial trans fat off the ‘generally recognized as safe’ list means consumers will be better able to avoid trans fat in restaurants and processed food. The move will save thousands of lives and improve the nation’s health and well being,” said Jane L. Delgado, President and CEO of the National Alliance for Hispanic Health, the nation’s leading Hispanic health advocacy group.
