I'm not sure I buy the "Only added sugars are a problem" line being claimed. If I get a drink that's made of sugarcane juice, it won't have any "added" sugar, but I'm pretty sure it won't be very healthy.

We already see this done with apple juice in "all juice" drinks, where high-sugar-concentration fruit is used to make it super-sweet, while touting its lack of artificial sugars.


For that matter, it's naïve to say one can simply ban trans fat. The process of frying will produce a small amount of trans fat in and of itsself, so even if no *intentional* trans fat is added, you could still get some, which should be declared.

A lot of the recommendations are decent, but some are really naïve. Using unrefined products doesn't make the parts kept when it's refined healthier, in the end.


People don't read the labels, so I'm not seeing how this is going to make a huge difference. But hey if it makes you feel better at the end of the day, go ahead and change the labeling.
