Posted Thursday, December 14, 2006

Like New York City, Ohio has banned smoking in public places, but now the Big Apple has banned trans fats. Is Cleveland ready to do the same? On The Sound of Ideas, we'll feast on a pairing of bans geared toward a healthier public. Pushing industry to make us healthier seems to be a trend in governing. But what's at stake for the restaurant industry? And why does it seem as though that smoking ban isn't really working? Join us for the conversation Thursday morning.




Trans Fat Ban - Dr. Bob DeMaria, author, Dr. Bob’s Trans Fat Survival Guide; Terry Allen, Cuyahoga County Health Director; Sheila Weiss, director of Nutrition Policy, National Restaurant Association; Kevin Conwell, member, Cleveland City Council. Smoking Ban Progress - Mark Glasper, communications director, Ohio Restaurant Association; Richard Giamori, owner, Ontario St. Café
