In every supermarket aisle in America, you will find product after product with partially hydrogenated oil, and often in products you would never expect. This is done because it is cheaper to the manufacturer, because it is allowed and the health of the public never enters into the equation.
The problem is not only that it is not illegal, but the fact that millions of Americans will buy those products. If you stop buying…they’ll stop selling it.
