Title: 'Smart Choices' food label: a sign of nutrition or marketing?
Post by: JessicaHi on September 29, 2009, 12:40:14 PM
It is for sure a sign of marketing.  Check out this article on the front page of the LA Times this morning.

A similar article I read this morning: http://www.usatoday.com/money/industries/food/2009-11-02-cereal-immunity-claim_N.htm

Cocoa Puffs boost your immunity?! I'm glad a lot of people have spoken out against this false claim.

Thank you for this valuable information.  It helps us understand just what we are up against as a society.  Bettering people's lives through nutrition includes involvement in public policy.  It is a lot of darned work!  Being vigilant and passing this type of information around to others is really important work.
