The Nutrition Wars and Downfall of Big Food

https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/12/13/war-on-nutrition-food-industry.aspx?utm_source=dnl&utm_medium=email&utm_content=art1&utm_campaign=20171213Z1_UCM&et_cid=DM171271&et_rid=150644684

Story at-a-glance
People are becoming increasingly cognizant of the connection between food and health, and are seeking out healthier fare. They’re also paying closer attention to labeling, favoring companies that provide clear disclosures
The Grocery Manufacturers Association, which was found guilty of money laundering and has fought hard against GMO labeling across the U.S., has lost some of its most prominent members, including Nestlé and Campbell’s
Food industry rifts have also become evident in the field of nutrition, with dietitians who support organics saying they’re being publicly shamed and harassed by their more industry-friendly peers
Online incivility has gotten so bad among dietitians, the American Dietetic Association published social media guidance for its members and is urging dietitians to sign a pledge of professional civility
To increase consumption of fruits and vegetables, Partnership for a Healthier America has launched a fruits and vegetable campaign (branded as FNV) to improve public perception and acceptance of real food


Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away--Wows happen!!!
