Group Description

Welcome to the tfX discussion forum, a place where you can keep up to date about trans fats and share your views.

It is estimated that trans fats cause the early death of between 5,000 and 20,000 people a year in the UK. They are mainly found in (partially) hydrogenated vegetable oil, a common ingredient in thousands of food products.

Trans fats are also thought to play a role in causing Alzheimer's disease, type 2 diabetes, omega-3 essential fatty acid deficiency and other disabling and life-threatening conditions.

By joining this discussion forum you will be kept up to date with the most recent news and events about trans fats. We hope the forum will also foster discussions and motivate action;

• To persuade Government to place an upper limit on trans fats both in food, and in oils and fats used in the preparation of food, as has already taken place in Denmark

• To persuade the food industry to voluntarily reduce levels of trans fats in their products, or eliminate them altogether

• To persuade the food industry to voluntarily label trans fats in products, as detailed above.
