The heart disease debate continues unabated in the United States.
The American Heart Association has called for a mandatory warning label on foods that contain margarine or butter.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued a rule that requires manufacturers to warn consumers about the potential dangers of margarine and other processed foods, and there’s still no federal ban on margarine.
And while some states have passed bans on butter and other sugary foods, the U.N. health agency says it’s not possible to definitively outlaw the spread of the disease.
In Canada, a study published last week found that nearly one in four adults in the country are overweight or obese.
The report found that the average Canadian person is more than twice as likely to be obese as the national average, and the number of overweight or obesity-related deaths rose by almost 10 percent in the past decade.
The Canadian government recently issued a new fat-shaming plan for children, saying it would help young people identify with unhealthy lifestyles.
At the heart of the debate is the health effects of the diet high in sugar and processed carbohydrates.
In the United Kingdom, the National Obesity Forum has recommended a 10 percent cut of daily sugar intake by middle-age.
In Europe, a report by the World Health Organization in June found that people in developed countries have more obesity-linked diseases than in developing countries.
And in the U to U.K., a British government commission last year recommended banning the sale of sugary drinks and other products that contain refined sugars.
But the British public has been divided over the recommendation, with a majority of Britons saying the proposed ban on sugary beverages would not affect the health of adults.
The United States has not yet made a formal declaration on margarines, but the U,S.
Sugar Association has issued guidelines for Americans who are overweight.
The association recommends that Americans consume a low-sugar, high-fiber diet.
As for the U of T report, it found that Americans are significantly more likely to suffer from coronary artery disease, stroke and other types of heart disease than their peers in other industrialized nations.
In fact, Americans are nearly four times more likely than the general population to develop heart disease, and American adults have a 40 percent higher risk of dying from a heart attack than their counterparts in the European Union, according to the report.
It also found that obesity rates among U. S. adults have increased from 12 percent in 1970 to 17 percent in 2015.
