Since the media seems to have missed it entirely, here's welcome proof that at least one person in the convoluted land of intergovernmental policy is taking on the challenge of playing provocateur to the food industry. Thanks Director General of the WHO, Dr. Margaret Chan (via UN):

"Instead of diseases vanishing as living conditions improve, socioeconomic progress is actually creating the conditions that favour the rise of non-communicable diseases...It is not just Big Tobacco anymore. Public health must also contend with Big Food, Big Soda, and Big Alcohol."
