Get Involved with BALANCED:
"Healthy food is a RIGHT, and we are going to FIGHT for it. For too long, too many major food corporations have prioritized their profits over our health. They’ve ignored federal dietary guidelines and the best nutrition evidence, and our families have paid the price—with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and premature death.
"These companies have created a public health crisis and blamed it on us, just like big tobacco did two generations ago. Like big tobacco, they’ve called consumer health an individual choice—not a corporate responsibility. The truth is, we’ve been set up to fail. When cafeterias, restaurants, and grocery aisles are overstocked with disease-causing foods, when major food corporations are promoting these products at every turn and piling them high on our plates, how much choice do we really have?"
Enough is enough: "TOGETHER, WE WILL HOLD MAJOR FOOD CORPORATIONS ACCOUNTABLE FOR BRINGING BALANCE TO CAFETERIAS, MENUS AND STORE SHELVES."
