From the PLoS Medicine online journal from July 2012 it notes: "The obesity crisis is made worse by the way industry formulates and markets its products, and so must be regulated to prevent excesses and to protect the public good," writes Kelly Brownell, a leading food expert. He argues that left to regulate itself, the food industry has the opportunity, if not the mandate from shareholders, to sell more products irrespective of their impact on consumers. Thus, government, foundations, and other powerful institutions should push for regulation of, and not collaboration with, the food industry.
As we see obesity spiraling out of control more people are looking for medication to help them lose weight. The secret is to consume quality nutrition and avoid watching advertisements which are cleverly designed to stimulate your sense of hunger. If we leave our nutrition to industry with no oversight, we are asking for trouble. Eat right, exercise, and get plenty of rest.
Have a blessed day!
