All Indulgent Products Are Not Created Equal
Georgetown Business for Impact released a new report, All Indulgent Products Are Not Created Equal, that highlights the need to abandon one-size-fits-all policy and dietary guidance to curb obesity. Business for Impact also hosted a forum to discuss the new report.
High obesity rates in the United States are driving policies targeting foods and beverages that are high in calories, fat, sodium, and sugar. Measures such as taxation, bans at retail checkout lanes and warning labels on package fronts have been advanced by regulatory bodies and public health advocates treating all such products equally, though delivering no measurable impact on public health outcomes. This new report demonstrates that all indulgent foods are not created equal and that policymakers should consider relevant evidence when making decisions on new laws, regulations, and policies that impact consumers and businesses.
