Can Public Health Advocates in Europe and United States Together Protect Public Health Regulation of Food?

In both Europe and the United States, public health regulation of the food industry is under attack.  In both these major world markets, the global food industry is using its power and influence to oppose taxes on sugary beverages, resist mandates for stronger regulation of food labeling, and defend continued presence of pesticides and herbicides in many foods.  But the growing health and economic burden of diet-related chronic diseases—also called non-communicable diseases—is creating new opportunities for support for stronger public health protection.
