World Health Organization takes on the food industry

WHO takes on politics of the food industry.

Excerpt from the article by Marion Nestle – Foodpolitics.com

“…two recent trends.
The first relates to trade agreements. Governments introducing measures to protect the health of their citizens are being taken to court, and challenged in litigation. This is dangerous.

The second is efforts by industry to shape the public health policies and strategies that affect their products. When industry is involved in policy-making, rest assured that the most effective control measures will be downplayed or left out entirely. This, too, is well documented, and dangerous.”
