Quotes

Steve Smith: Hayley, here's what I know: I'm off to deliver food to the elderly to earn my gerontology badge. I have this bike helmet which crushes my ears, itches my head and gives me Bonnie Franklin hair. Now, why do I wear it? Because it's the law.

Irresponsibly misleading approach to the topic
10 August 2018 | by vercingerSee all my reviews

While the basic idea of the episode - Stan goes from "all laws must be followed" to "stupid laws should be ignored" immediately upon something he likes getting banned - is good, the show really screws up in its portrayal of trans fats. Over and over again it's drilled into the viewer that trans fats make food taste good and that it will taste terrible without them. This is total nonsense, as food made with other types of fat tastes no different. Trans fats are used because they slightly reduce cost and somewhat increase shelf life, not for their taste. And given how ridiculously unhealthy they are, it's irresponsible for the show to portray them as something people would want in their food. Especially given that other types of fat (even saturated fats, despite their now-discredited bad reputation) are among the most healthy sources of calories. And you just know there are people out there who will get their opinion on trans fats from this episode, and many more who will have their opinion shifted at least a bit in the wrong direction. Cue reduction in pressure on manufacturers to phase out trans fats, leading to tens of thousands of unnecessary early deaths from heart disease.
