McGraw-Hill, Hear This

Another item in the news you will see nowhere else

CHICAGO - McDonald's said Thursday its french fries are now trans-fat-free in all its restaurants in the United States and Canada, catching it up with its fast-food rivals in that category--Associated Press. May 23, 2008

If McDonald's can do it, why not McGraw-Hill? Now is the time when education professionals must demand zero-trans-fat in the materials they present to children.

Federal regulations allow foods to claim zero grams of trans fat as long as the levels are below 0.5 grams per serving. Hey there, Harold McGraw III, chairman, president and chief executive officer of The McGraw-Hill Companies, a leading global information services provider meeting worldwide needs in the financial services, education and business information markets through such leading brands as Standard & Poor's, McGraw-Hill Education, BusinessWeek and J.D. Power and Associates, AND the chair of the Business Roundtable, what's the trans-fat content of Open Court?

And worse, what's the brain-numbing content?

Write your Congressional representative today, demanding a stop to this assault on children.
