Churchville, VA (PRWEB) September 30, 2005

The Center for Global Food Issues (CGFI), a food and farming related non-profit research and public policy organization, is providing analysis and commentary on several organizations currently lobbying on food-related issues. The profiles and commentary, published in CGFIÂ’s popular Milk is Milk blog, include such organizations as: the Weston A. Price Foundation, Citizens for Health, and Mercola. com (run by Joe Mercola).

The U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is considering limiting health claims on food labels that aren't completely proven after a government study found such statements confuse consumers. CGFI urges similar scrutiny to all food safety claims, both positive and negative, beyond those found on food labels to include Web sites, marketing materials and other sources.

The Center for Global Food Issues is a project of the Hudson Institute, a tax-exempt non-profit public policy organization, providing factual, science-based information on important food and farming issues.
