Latest Sign of the Apocolypse

New York City Health Board Votes To Ban Trans Fats.

Of course I have a huge problem with this as a libertarian, but the most disturbing thing about laws like this is the arogance behind them. The arrogance of the government dictating what we should and shouldn't eat, as if we need them to tell us what's best for us, and the arrogance of anyone who thinks that at this moment in history we know precisely what foods are healthy and what foods are just too unhealthy to allow. Just look at how drastically views on nutrition have continually changed over the past fifty years.
