Wal-Mart to Require Healthier Foods

In July 2008, Wal-Mart, not the FDA, banned the chemical Bisphenol-A from being used in the plastic baby bottles sold on its shelves.

This week, again with no FDA intervention, Wal-Mart announced that they are requiring suppliers to reduce the sodium content of packaged food by 25%, and added sugars by 10%, as well as remove any industrially produced trans-fats. Although I  try to avoid processed, canned, frozen, and non-organic foods, I can’t help but wonder how many lives will be saved by Wal-Mart’s bold decision.
