Consumer demand is the best way to change the food industry. Producers will eventually listen. Superbugs are a serious problem for human health.
Industry funded studies are becoming a major influence on nutrition research that is already considered by some to have some important design limitations.
Headlines often proclaim that certain foods have healthy benefits not supported by science. These are used as marketing tools by the companies to describe their products in terms of what is described as a “health halo.” This practice contributes to false claims and the dissemination of nutrition misinformation which is already abundant.
One reason is that research in nutrition is not very well funded by very many sources; therefore, food companies often do provide the funds and at the same time gain their own benefits, i.e., increase their profits.
The debate about whether glyphosate is a carcinogen continues and now is being taken to the courts. There is so much bias on this topic, but if this is true, becomes disturbing since the herbicide has been used so extensively in the U.S. for decades.
It is amazing when consumers get educated on the healthy and beneficial aspects of our food supply and that supermarkets are participating.
When consumers demand, things happen!!
I certainly hope so since it is now the most widely used herbicide in the world – thanks to Monsanto. I cannot believe that its safety is still being questioned. Would that not have been done before we used so much of it? Read about a new project HERE.
This will be an interesting case to follow if it continues – what will the law say about this growing problem with Coca-Cola?
Most legitimate research presents their conflicts of interest (if any) and their funding sources when the study is published in a peer-reviewed journal. Always look for that information; sometimes it is not provided at all or hard to find.
