Transfat/Smoking Bans The Healthy Cleveland Initiative, a partnership between the city and four major hospitals, seeks to make Northeast Ohioans more fit by promoting better choices. But it doesn't simply entail education and encouragement. There's legislation in the works in Cleveland that would further limit where smokers can light up and bans transfats in local restaurants. Critics think the city is over-reaching. Let's have a healthy discussion, Tuesday at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.
