Harmful effects from consuming unhealthy food could be likened to the harmful effects from smoking. We have to be more aware of the food choices that we make for ourselves and our kids. The article compares nutrients intake from a popular food menu (Cheeseburger combo meal) with a healthy alternative like Turkey sandwich meal. The article also re-emphasizes the harmful effects of carbonated soft drinks ("CSDs"), specifically on children.
There are two solutions that the article proposes:
♦ Front-of-pack warning on unhealthy food: All unhealthy food should carry appropriate alert messages so that users can make informed choices
♦ Ban the sale of CSDs to children under the age of 16: Consuming CSDs have been linked to obesity, type 2 diabetes, dental caries etc.
