WASHINGTON Solde Homme Nike Air Presto Uncaged Ultra Blanche Grise , Feb. 27 (Xinhua) -- The U.S. government on Thursday proposed to update the Nutrition Facts label for packaged foods as part of an effort to help consumers make healthier choices.
The proposed updates are intended to reflect the latest scientific information about the link between diet and chronic diseases such as obesity and heart disease, the White House said in a statement.
The proposed label would also replace "out-of-date serving sizes" to better align with the amount consumers actually eat, and it would feature a fresh design to highlight key parts of the label such as calories and serving sizes, it said.
U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama, who has launched the "Let's Move!" initiative to fight childhood obesity, announced the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) proposal at the White House with Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius and FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg.
"Our guiding principle here is very simple: that you as a parent and a consumer should be able to walk into your local grocery store Solde Nike Air Presto Uncaged Ultra Blanche , pick up an item off the shelf, and be able to tell whether it's good for your family," said Obama.
"So this is a big deal, and it's going to make a big difference for families all across this country," she said.
Under the FDA proposal, calories and serving sizes would be displayed more prominently in larger Solde Nike Air Presto Uncaged Ultra Noir , bold type. Serving sizes would be updated to more accurately reflect what people are actually eating. The FDA said what and how much Americans eat and drink has changed since the serving sizes were first put in place in 1994.
The FDA also proposed to list "added sugars" on the label along with the current "Sugars" declaration, which includes both naturally occurring and added sugar, to help consumers know how much sugar has been added to the product during food production. The FDA said intake of added sugar is too high in the U.S. population and should be reduced.
The revisions would also require listing the amount of Vitamin D and potassium, which the FDA said many Americans don't get enough of. According to the agency, vitamin D is important for its role in bone health while potassium is beneficial in lowering blood pressure. Vitamins A and C would no longer be required on the label, though manufacturers could declare them voluntarily.
"Calories from Fat" would be removed Solde Homme Nike Air Presto High Noir , while "Total Fat," " Saturated Fat," and "Trans Fat" remain because research shows the type of fat is more important than the amount, the FDA said.
The Nutrition Facts label in the U.S., which has been required on food packages for 20 years, has not changed significantly since 2006 when information on trans fat had to be declared on the label Solde Homme Nike Air Presto Safari Noir Jaune , prompting manufacturers to reduce partially hydrogenated oils, the main source of trans fat, in many of their products.
The FDA said the proposed updates affect all packaged foods except certain meat, poultry and processed egg products, which are regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.
The agency said it will accept public comment on the proposed changes for 90 days.
The PayPal accounts of many Chinese businesses have been frozen and cleared due to suspected involvement in the trade of fake products, Beijing News reported on Tuesday.
A man surnamed Yang said his account has been frozen since December 9 Solde Femme Nike Air Presto BR Rose , with five years of savings worth 650,000 yuan ($103,942) inaccessible.
Yang said he had planned to buy a house with that money as down payment.
On November 16, 2014 a buyer from the US contacted Yang's brother, also in the foreign trade business, claiming to want to buy large quantities of men's gloves.The American requested a PayPal account to complete the transaction Solde Nike Air Presto Qs Verte , but Yang's brother had none, so he used Yang's account instead. On December 10, the latter logged in to his PayPal account to find it frozen.
PayPal's customer service staff explained that an Illinois State court sent them a summons saying Yang might be violating the intellectual property right (IPR) of an American brand.
He later received a letter from Greer, Burns & Crain (GBC), a law firm, saying that a lawsuit had been filed against him by the brand owner.
The American buyer has not paid yet and the transaction is incomplete Solde Nike Air Presto SE Woven Bleu , Yang said.
It was added that he had contacted PayPal many times, hoping to have his account unfrozen, but to no avail and with PayPal saying that, as a third party, they must obey the law.
Yang suspected a picture of the glove he had downloaded and sent to the American caused the problem.
Many Chinese e-businesses have had the same experience: American buyers who claim to purchase counterfeits at high prices chat with Chinese sellers online, gain their PayPal account info and sue them based on their communication records. Due to high lawyer fees in the US Femme Nike Air Presto QS Rouge Blanche Solde , most sellers do not respond to the lawsuits and, as a result, their accounts are frozen and even cleared.
A member of a QQ group created to protect the rights of Chinese PayPal users said there are 134 people in their group who have been affected with $1,794,511 involved.
And this reflects just a small number; the PayPal accounts of numerous Chinese cross-border sellers have been frozen while they face lawsuits from brand owners who are deciding to crack down on fakes.
The PayPal accounts of a man surnamed Zheng was finally unfrozen on January 12 after he paid up to $9000 to an American Chinese lawyer who won a legal challenge on his behalf.
A man surnamed Wang, whose PayPal had also been frozen Nike Air Presto Rouge Bordeaux Solde , said that hiring an attorney in the US is very expensive; they charge $400-500 an hour and a lawsuit could last for three months or even half a year, which means a whopping price to protect individual rights.
A merchant surnamed Wei found his money was gone from his PayPal account on.
