The White House and FDA have
just released their guidance to revise the ubiquitous Nutrition Facts and
Supplement Facts panels. There are some improvements in these changes—and some errors.
Please write to the FDA and
tell them what you like about the new labeling proposal—and what you don’t
like. In particular, tell them to label fluoride content in food, and get them
to raise their absurdly low Daily Values for vitamins and minerals.
And if you missed our ultra
urgent alert on the attempt to ban folate from supplements buried in these new
rules, please take action on that here.
Dear [Decision Maker],
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
