The war of the labels

I am sure most people are aware of the war of labels such as Coca Cola and Pepsi, not to mention the big car labels, but those are not the labels I am thinking of, or is it?

The war of the food labels is all the hype in the UK at the moment. Will the governments recommendation of red, yellow, green, the traffic light code prejudice some foods? And would that be a bad thing?

If we look at the products of some of the food companies who object maybe we can understand better why they don't want the consumers to be able to easily identify which foods are good, and which are bad?

A spoonfull of sugar (might) help make the medicine go down...

Have you seen the Tesco labels? I generally like and prefer Tesco but I am completely peed off by their new and misleadng lables. In the end you don't know what you are reading and what percentage of what is being said. Lying statistics comes to mind with the way they manipulate the labels.

I try and stay away from anything with a label... I don't think processed food is good for you in general, no matter how many plusses or green stickers it carries.
