 Trans Fats Banned in California Eateries
In a bid to promote healthy eating in restaurants, California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has passed a bill that bans all the restaurants in the state from using oils, margarines and shortening that contains more than half a gram of trans fat in each serving.

The bill, signed in July last year, kicked into effect from January 1 and any restaurant found in violation of the law will face fines anywhere from $25 to $1,000.

The new law also gives restaurants time up to January 1 2011 to ban adding trans fats in deep fried yeast dough and cake batter.
