The FDA is turning up the heat on artificial trans fats, saying it no longer considers the heart-clogging additives to be generally safe in foods. It's a major policy shift and the first step in banning artificial trans fats from the nation's food supply. Without that "generally safe" designation, it will eventually be illegal to sell foods containing man-made trans fats. Anderson discussed all this with Senior Medical Correspondent Elizabeth Cohen.
Michael Moss is the author of "Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us" and has plenty to say about trans fats.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
