13 Sep 2019 --- Cases of diabetes have decreased in across many populations, according to an analysis of 47 studies between 1980 and 2017. Since 2006, the incidence of clinically diagnosed diabetes has continued to rise in only a minority of populations, with a third of the studies reporting a fall in incidence in this time period. While this is likely due to the success of preventative strategies changing people’s dietary habits, the researchers stress that “we cannot take our foot off the pedal” if the changes are to be maintained.

11 Sep 2019 --- While some US cities currently tax sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) by the volume of the drink, a tax system based on the amount of sugar the drink contains would produce greater health benefits and economic gains. This is according to an analysis by researchers at New York University (NYU), Harvard’s TH Chan School of Public Health, the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and the University of California (UC), Berkeley. The proposed taxing system could lead to an annual national gain of US$1.8 billion, primarily generated through savings in health care costs.

10 Sep 2019 --- A tax on high sugar snacks, such as cookies, cakes, chocolates and candy, might be more effective at reducing obesity levels than a sugary drink tax. This is according to a UK study published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) which found that a 20 percent “snack tax” on high sugar snacks could reduce energy intake, body mass index (BMI) and the prevalence of obesity. Moreover, the findings showed that the tax had a greater impact on lower-income households classified as obese, as opposed to higher-income households classified as not overweight. The researchers note that increasing the price on high sugar snacks “is worthy of further research and consideration as part of an integrated approach to tackling obesity.”

10 Sep 2019 --- Denmark will introduce a ban on perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in July next year due to the potential risks the chemicals pose to human health. The nation cites that the health risk is too great to wait for the EU to make a regulatory move on this front. Under the new regulation, all items, including food packaging, using PFAS chemicals must be reformulated without the “forever chemicals,” as their signature elemental bonds of fluorine and carbon are extremely strong and difficult to disintegrate in the environment and in living beings. These chemicals have been linked to a number of health risks such as cancer, elevated cholesterol and decreased fertility.

Yet this sky-rocketing interest has led to increased calls for regulatory clarification – particularly directed toward the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
