The front labeling law has already gone into effect, and for some weeks now it has been giving us a show of nonsense that could be very comical, if it were not yet another threat.
The Front Labeling Law says that it seeks to inform about the presence of excess components that may be harmful to health in the products that appear on the shelves of stores: we are talking about putting a package of potato chips or a serving of dairy products on the same level of classification.
It turns out that not only does it not fulfill the function it describes in its discourse, but it also becomes an attack against the food industry. It does not educate for nutrition, it indoctrinates for resentment: we are facing an arbitrary and harmful law.
The objectives of the front labeling law are, as they say, “to guarantee the right to health and adequate food, to provide understandable nutritional information on packaged foods and alcoholic beverages to protect the rights of consumers, to warn consumers about excess sugars, sodium, saturated fats, total fat and calories and to prevent malnutrition in the population and reduce chronic non-communicable diseases”.
It seems that all this becomes clear and intelligible by adding geometric figures. And that’s how a portion of cheese becomes almost a poison compared to a glass of soda. The madness is total.
