Mexico – Foreign academics send letter to Supreme Court in support of food labeling

Researchers and academics from universities in the United States, Canada, Brazil and Europe, among other countries, sent a letter to the justices of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) to express their support for front warning labeling on food and beverages.
They pointed out that it is one of the most effective measures to reverse overweight and obesity; more than 30 researches and controlled trials in Israel, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Argentina, Uruguay and Mexico have demonstrated that the health provision contributes to reduce the intake of sugar, salt and added saturated fats.
