Is The Pizza Industry Controlling What Consumers Know About Their Food?

When laws are passed and delayed for the benefit of the food industry it sends a strong message to the public. Is the government is inadequately responding to the health problems our population faces because corporate profit is more important?

I don’t think that labelling calories of food items will solve the health crisis we’re facing but … I do think that labelling calories can help consumers make better decisions about their food based on increased knowledge for the times that they do choose to eat out.

Past FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg has said “Americans eat and drink about one-third of their calories away from home and people today expect clear information about the products they consume … Making calorie information available on chain restaurant menus and vending machines is an important step for public health that will help consumers make informed choices for themselves and their families.”

“No one food will make or break your diet”

When a woman like Edwena talks about nutrition you’re going to want to listen to what she has got to say. Her family inspires her to cook, she loves learning from her aunts and she believes that all foods fit in a healthy diet. She thinks foods are for nourishing and not for demonizing.

She’s of the opinion that people should make cooking a priority and the government should be taxing overly processed foods while subsidizing local fruits and vegetables.
