The fact is restricting what certain Americans can eat will not improve health and reduce obesity. We agree with the USDA’s stance on this issue, which advocates education rather than regulation, saying: “incentives – rather than restrictions that encourage purchases of certain foods or expanded nutrition education to enable participants to make healthy choices are more practical options and likely to be more effective in achieving the dietary improvements that promote good health.” In other words, approaches rooted in education, will prove more effective than bans and regulation.
