OBESITY, NOT OUR FAULT?

In the article "McGill Researchers Recommend the 'NuVal' Food Rating System" from CTV News, it says that food labels are too complicated to understand and to evaluate for normal consumers. Therefore, people do not refer to them when they buy their food so they do not do healthy choices. The consequences are that a lot of people are diagnosed with obesity while Canada’s food labels could be change to be simple to read. The NuVal system is proposed and has been proved to work well.
It is true that food choices are an important part to stay healthy, but the most important thing is to stay active and it is not by changing the food labels that people will become healthier. Although changing the food labels could help, people’s lifestyle is the most important thing to change even if it is only to take a ten minutes’ walk every day. Being active is the key.

I trust CTV News’ information because it always have been the channel I watch the news on and as far as I can remember it never gave false information.
