FDA moves to ban trans-fat

Again, fruit or kernel or both?

Personally I'd rather use canola for everything except those things that need a solid fat to have the proper texture, and then use butter. Others not so much, and Palm fruit is somewhat better than trans-fat.

As far as I can see all the palm tree oils are bad for you whatever part of it they come from. moreover, huge areas of rain forest is being cut down to plant palm oil trees. 

 

it's also a problem that palm oil isn't marked on the packaging so you often don't know about it and it's hard to avoid it unlike trans fat.
