Superior Efficacy of Front-of-Package Warning Labels in Jamaica

Must Read!

Superior Efficacy of Front-of-Package Warning Labels in Jamaica.
This fact-sheet presents the results of the first study to take place in the Caribbean to examine the best performing front-of-package labeling (FOPL). It was conducted by the Ministry of Health and Wellness of Jamaica, the University of Technology, Jamaica, and the Pan American Health Organization, and contributes to the evidence that has been accumulated in the Region of the Americas on the topic. Consumers showed the octagonal warning labels had the highest chances of correctly identifying when products were excessive in sugars, sodium, or saturated fats, of correctly identifying the least harmful option, and of choosing the least harmful or none of the products more often.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) 9 out of 10 people live in places where the air quality exceeds the established limits.
Indoor and outdoor air pollution influences our health in several ways.
Walking or cycling through uncongested routes, exercising and avoiding areas with polluted air are activities that reduce our risk from this exposure.
