Move over, big gulps and trans fats: NY looks to ban another unhealthy choice

by Jeremy Hooper

Here in the New York City, the finest grocery stores stock all kinds of pricey oils. From basic olive to the more exotic sacha inchi, oils of all kinds are at the culinary minded consumer's disposal.

But while some of these oils skew toward the unhealthy yet are still sometimes utilized due to their downright deliciousness, there is one oil that just won't fly in a state that values its LGBT population.

The vast majority of New Yorkers recognize that oil for the inorganic processing it requires and the nasty after effects it packs. The vast majority reject it outright.
