The Center For Consumer Freedom is fighting the good fight in the war against personal nutrition choice.  They have some encouraging news:  their message is getting into popular culture.  American Dad! on Trans Fats

It was just over a year ago that King of the Hill highlighted the absurdity of food restrictions. Last Sunday, American Dad! got on board, too. In the episode, the show’s lead character, CIA agent Stan Smith, becomes outraged when the city council of Langley Falls bans trans fats. Though no one on the show pretends that trans fats are particularly healthy, they are not the scourge of the Earth, either: As the writers of the show failed to point out, Americans have been safely eating it for decades, and our life expectancy has grown.
