FDA oversees federal requirements to prohibit false or misleading food labels; the FTC enforces the prohibition against false or misleading advertising. By statute, health claims on food labels must have significant scientific agreement, but in 2002, in response to a court decision, FDA decided to allow qualified health claims with less scientific support. Structure/function claims refer to a food's effect on body structure or function and are also used on food. This study of FDA's implementation of qualified health claims for food examined: (1) the results of FDA's efforts to allow the use of qualified health claims and oversight of these claims; and (2) consumers' understanding of the claims. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand publication.

In "Weight Gain: When It's Not Your Fault," Dr. Lance Dean Ashworth reveals that the struggle with weight is, in most cases, caused by a number of surprisingly common medical conditions. He explains how your symptoms, the lab values, the condition, and the cure all come together to help you lose weight. Some of the medical conditions that he sites are an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism), anemia, post-menopausal hormone deficiencies in women, and psychological issues, among other conditions. Dr. Ashworth explains that physicians focus their attention on the individual diseases that result from being overweight or obese while ignoring the potential cure-weight loss itself. Instead of the "Band-Aid approach" to such diseases as diabetes and high blood pressure, physicians must focus on the cause of these conditions in their overweight patients, which is fatty tissue! He contends that a paradigm shift in the treatment of obesity is long overdue-a shift from the reactionary mentality of the current medical environment to a proactive, cure-driven focus on the conditions associated with obesity. "Weight Gain: When It's Not Your Fault" provides the knowledge you need to ask your physician the right medically-relevant questions. These questions will guide you and your physician to determine how and why you gained weight in the first place.

It has become popular to blame the American obesity epidemic and many other health-related problems on processed food. Many of these criticisms are valid for some processed-food items, but many statements are overgeneralizations that unfairly target a wide range products that contribute to our health and well-being. In addition, many of the proposed dangers allegedly posed by eating processed food are exaggerations based on highly selective views of experimental studies. We crave simple answers to our questions about food, but the science behind the proclamations of food pundits is not nearly as clear as they would have you believe. This book presents a more nuanced view of the benefits and limitations of food processing and exposes some of the tricks both Big Food and its critics use to manipulate us to adopt their point of view. Food is a source of enjoyment, a part of our cultural heritage, a vital ingredient in maintaining health, and an expression of personal choice. We need to make those choices based on credible information and not be beguiled by the sophisticated marketing tools of Big Food nor the ideological appeals and gut feelings of self-appointed food gurus who have little or no background in nutrition.

Everyday, millions of people eat earth, clay, nasal mucus, and similar substances. Yet food practices like these are strikingly understudied in a sustained, interdisciplinary manner. This book aims to correct this neglect. Contributors, utilizing anthropological, nutritional, biochemical, psychological and health-related perspectives, examine in a rigorously comparative manner the consumption of foods conventionally regarded as inedible by most Westerners. This book is both timely and significant because nutritionists and health care professionals are seldom aware of anthropological information on these food practices, and vice versa. Ranging across diversity of disciplines Consuming the Inedible surveys scientific and local views about the consequences - biological, mineral, social or spiritual - of these food practices, and probes to what extent we can generalize about them.
"To understand your eating, you first have to understand yourself. This easily-read book helps you to step back and discover what influences your eating habits." Dr Ian Campbell - Founder of the National Obesity Forum and medical consultant on ITV's The Biggest Loser and Fat Chance "This valuable book makes sense of how food and eating may be misused and become entangled with emotions as a way of dealing with them." Dr Helena Fox - Clinical Psychiatrist for Channel 4's Supersize vs Superskinny and for the eating disorders unit at Capio Nightingale Hospital "Highly recommended for anyone who is interested in understanding why diets do not work and how to move on from the pattern of emotional eating." Professor John McLeod - Professor of Counselling at the University of Abertay Dundee Are you eating more than you should? Trapped in a constant cycle of dieting? Perpetually anxious about your weight, shape and size? Many of us fight an ongoing battle with food. Understanding Your Eating can help you if the way you use food bothers you and you feel it is beyond your control. Author Julia Buckroyd uses the term disordered eating rather than eating disorders, to reach out to everyone who is distressed and miserable about food. Understanding Your Eating will help you become more aware of your feelings towards food, understand your emotional eating, and explore the reasons behind your challenges, so that you can find other ways of managing your day-to-day experiences.

Food products with genetically modified (GM) ingredients are common, yet many consumers are unaware of this. When polled, consumers say that they want to know whether their food contains GM ingredients, just as many want to know whether their food is natural or organic. Informing consumers is a major motivation for labeling. But labeling need not be mandatory. Consumers who want GM-free products will pay a premium to support voluntary labeling. Why do consumers want to know about GM ingredients? GM foods are tested to ensure safety and have been on the market for more than a decade. Still, many consumers, including some with food allergies, want to be cautious. Also, GM crops may affect neighboring plants through pollen drift. Despite tests for environmental impact, some consumers may worry that GM crops will adversely effect the environment. The study of risk and its management raises questions not settled by the life sciences alone. This book surveys various labeling policies and the cases for them. It is the first comprehensive, interdisciplinary treatment of the debate about labeling genetically modified food. The contributors include philosophers, bioethicists, food and agricultural scientists, attorneys/legal scholars, and economists.
