Yet who Knows the Truth and Calls it a Lie, is a Criminal." -
In "Galileo Galilei" by Berthold Brecht (1898-1956)

Despite all the public uproar about trans fats that's pushed American cities to ban them along with fast-food restaurant chains, Girl Scout cookies still have them, even after changes to their recipes.

Again, it's all a matter of deceptive labeling, thanks to the folks at the FDA. Most varieties of Girl Scout cookies still contain some partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, but, because it's less than a half-gram per serving, the agency allows cookie makers to get away with calling them trans fat-free when they really aren't.

And, eating several servings a day -- not at all uncommon for people who buy these fatty, sugar-laden cookies every year -- means more trans fats patients don't need.
