We should do more about this issue.
Saturated fats are neutral, they were incriminated in the past on an erroneous base. Industrial trans fats are deleterious for CVD, D2 and cancer. Why the EU did not ignore those scientific facts? Because of the pressure of the agro-food industry and the dairy industry. But we know now that only industrial trans fats (ITF) are deleterious.
So the EU bureaucrats should take one decision on this issue in order to protect public health as ITF are not GRAS: requiring labelling of ITF for all foods in the EU.
