Checking new and amazing music for The Thaiger everyday with Donna Toon

If you are a Toons Tunes regular you will know my favourite artist currently is Norwegian record producer and DJ Kygo, he is joined this time by American singer Miquel for the brand new track called “Remind Me To Forget”.

The song features on Kygo’s second studio album called “Kids in Love” which he released in the later part of 2017. The album itself comprises of a number of collaborations with different artists, including Miguel, The Night Game, One Republic and Jason Walker.

The hip hop, funk artist Miguel has also just dropped a new album, his fourth called “War and Leisure” which if you ask me is an oxymoron. The album has a number of tracks that are in keeping with his vibe but also a couple of surprises in the rock genre!

It’s a great track to wind up another week of Toons Tunes here at The Thaiger 102.75 FM, “Remind Me To Forget” Kygo and Miguel.

The Public Health Ministry is poised to ban the production, import and distribution of food containing trans fat.

Trans fat, also called trans-unsaturated fatty acids or trans fatty acids, are a type of unsaturated fat that occur in small amounts in nature but became widely produced industrially from vegetable fats starting in the 1950s for use in margarine, snack food, and packaged baked goods and for frying fast food. Trans fat has been shown to consistently be associated, in an intake-dependent way, with increased risk of coronary artery disease, a leading cause of death in Western nations. – Wikipedia

The order which was issued on June 13 and will become effective 180 days after its publication in the Royal Gazette cites scientific evidence that trans fatty acids from partially hydrogenated oils will increase the risk of heart diseases and stroke.  It is also associated with a higher risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes.

Common foods which contain trans fats include cakes, pies and cookies, margarine, crackers, microwave popcorn, cream-filled candies, doughnuts, breakfast sandwiches, fried fast foods, frozen pizza.

It is not known when the ministerial order will be published in the Royal Gazette.
