New York City may soon give residents and visitors a lesson in fatty foods.
The New York City Health Department is considering a ban on artificial trans-fatty acids.
The ban would keep the trans-fats off restaurant menus.
Health experts say trans-fats, like those used to cook french fries and doughnuts, are a major factor behind heart disease.
However, some say the ban goes too far.
The Board of Health says it won't make a decision until December.
