Fun Fact from Biochem

May 15, 2008

Did you know…

that the FDA allows companies to label their products as having “no trans fat” as long as they have less than half a gram of trans fat per serving?

Last time I checked, none of something and less than half a gram per serving of something were not the same thing.

It’s still the first week of classes (right now, we’re taking a 10 minute break at the midway point through our 2 hour cell biology lecture) and by tomorrow, I will have had a lecture in each of our 1st semester courses. Tomorrow is also the White Coat Ceremony, which will be streamed live.

Uh oh, break’s over. Back to histology!
