To the Editor: The Viewpoint by Drs Dietz and Scanlon1 described the need for trans-fatty acids (TFAs) to be reduced for a variety of public health reasons. Although we agree that TFAs carry significant detrimental health effects for populations, we would like to propose an alternate method of addressing this issue prior to enforced reduction or elimination of TFAs.
