Fitness, Health and Wellness Expert Dr. Veronica Anderson Publishes New Blog Boldly Protesting Federal Health Policy Loopholes
Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, a weekly resource for wellness of mind, body and spirit, comments on a New York Times article that reveals our government’s choice to be selective on calorie reporting amidst food companies.
NEW YORK, NY – May 10, 2011 – Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, recently published a blog on her website www.drveronica.com speaking out against the Food and Drug Administration’s choice to eliminate some calorie reporting requirements. Dr. Veronica explains her stance in her blog, titled “Government Policies Promoting Plump People.”
Dr. Anderson writes, “Recently, the US government Food and Drug Administration (FDA) passed litigation that requires restaurant chains to provide nutritional information for their food to their customers. However, the policy’s loopholes allow for some significantly high calorie food and beverages to be served underneath the observation and provision of revealing nutritional information. This proposed policy makes no sense at all. Just the high calorie foods and drinks that people forget to count are the ones that are excluded from the requirement?”
“In my not-always-humble opinion, I believe that all places that serve food should fall under the guidelines of calorie reporting. That especially goes for drinks and alcoholic beverages – they must be included. Recently, a New York Times article was published about this very policy. According to the article, Calorie-Counting to Leave Out Movie Theaters, ‘The federal government on Friday released proposed rules requiring chain restaurants and other businesses that serve food to post calorie counts on menus and menu boards. But after objections from theater chains, the rules give a pass to those box-office snacks — even though a large popcorn and soda can contain as many calories as a typical person needs in a day’,” asserts Dr. Anderson.
