Eat your doughnuts while you still can, Portland! Today the New York City Board of Health passed a ban eliminating trans fat from the city's 20,000-plus restaurants. Trans fats, which have been linked to heart disease and high levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol, are typically found in fried foods as well as baked goods like cakes, cookies and pies. New York is the first city to pass such a ban, but other cities, like Chicago, are considering similar action. NYC restaurants will be given until July 2008 to completely phase out trans fats.
