I'm not a great chef or anything, but isn't adding salt before cooking sort of vital for certain forms of preparation? And I'm not Jewish, but wouldn't this outlaw the whole koshering process.

> But many chefs and restaurant owners said they are tired of politicians dictating what they can serve and what people can eat. They have opposed the city's anti-sodium and anti-transfat campaigns.

Now evidence against salt except for a small subset of people with hypertension is somewhat dubious, but it's really hard to sympathize with someone who wants to keep poisoning people with trans fats.

Tomasz: Nobody's making anyone eat a gram of trans-fat if they don't want to. (And with all the hype about them, "no trans fats!" is popular advertising these days...)

Nor is that a good use of the term "poison". Let people risk a modest increase in the possibility of heart disease if they wish; and the rest of the risks of trans-fats are so minor as to be nobody's god damn regulatory business in any case.
