Too frank for the food industry

Last year Dr. Yoni Friedhoff was invited by the Ontario Medical Association to speak at a small food industry association breakfast. Just days before the event, the organizers uninvited Dr. Friedhoff without any explanation.

Having prepared his Powerpoint and talk, he decided to post it on-line for all of us to hear and see. In fact, more than 228,000 people have already viewed it on YouTube.

Friedhoff says the food services industry has a fiduciary duty to make profits and zero responsibility to protect public health. That responsibility should be up to us, including levelling the playing field so that ethical food producers can compete with those who make false claims about the health of their products.
