Tackling childhood obesity: What role should industry take?
The industrialized food and beverage industry, through their Washington DC lobby group, The Grocery Manufacturers Association, spent documented tens of millions of bribe dollars with The White House, US Senate, and US House, to stop any attempt to alter current food ingredient practices, like High Fructose Corn Syrup flooding all food and beverage, which is causing obesity throughout America, but is the most PROFITABLE bulking chemically derived ingredient to use after air, water or salt in any food or beverage.
The fraudulent new USDA/FDA bait and switch plate model, from the former Pyramid Scheme, is not better, if not worse.
62+ percent of all daily calories consumed in America are genetically modified corn/soy and harmful chemically refined sweeteners and carbohydrates, CAUSING pandemics in diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, cancers, depression, inflammatory conditions, birth defects, as well as obesity.
Uncle Sam is a pimp for lobby death merchants and cannot be trusted whatsoever.

The food industry could play an important role in fighting childhood obesity and improving children’s nutrition, according to a panel of experts speaking at IFT last week.
