This is a huge victory no matter how you look at it. The food industry has done everything it can to make food less healthy, sweeter, fatter, and more addictive.
Obviously this isnt going to solve obesity and food related health problems. It will help though. Even if most people dont pay attention it will cause the industry to change things in an effort to appearing unhealthy on the packaging.
The food we consume today is not the same as it was 30, 50, and nothing like it was 100 years ago. But we often act as though Americans have always ate the same things and that its not the fault of the food. But it is the food. The food is different. We eat different types of food, more of everything, and many things we eat are not made from the same ingredients they were 30 years ago.
Its time to hold Big Ag and the food industry responsible for what they are filling our slop troughs with.
