Obama care is just the first of many health laws that the government will pass to do what they feel will help the health of most American citizens. The governement needs to step back and stop worrying about our health, we have lived long enough without it these laws therefore we don't need them.
The fight and ban of trans fights pre dates the affordable care act. Trans fats are really bad for people and there are many other options that companies could use. Trans fats are significantly worse than other types of cooking materials, and should be switched. With a country plagues with obesity, it's not a bad idea.
The pending ban is a natural consequence of stricter food labeling trends, and a result of rising obesity. Trans-fat labels on foods started appearing in 2006, and given the rising instances of heart disease and obesity in the US population, and the rising costs of health care to deal with those problems, the pending ban has been in the works for a while.
The ban on trans-fats isn't about the Affordable Care Act. It's about making sure Americans are healthy and don't die from a heart attack because they are getting too much salt. The role of government is to protect its citizens, which includes protecting us from eating horrible ingredients in food. Next, we should ban large soda cups like in New York City.
No, the pending FDA ban on trans-fats was not the first of many laws stemming from Obamacare, because there were already laws in place that had to do with trans fats. Laws against trans-fats have been considered and even put in place long before Obamacare. Trans fats have been on the chopping block for a long time. The campaign against them is nothing new.
The pending FDA ban on trans fats are just the first of many laws stemming from Obamacare. If this law ends up getting past and trans fats get banned, this will open the door for people to start banning other types of foods or other food additives they deem unhealthy.
Although there may be some laws coming that will be because of Obamacare, I do not believe this is one of them. I think this ban would have happened whether or not Obamacare was passed and put into law or not. It has been on the brink of happening for quite a few years.
