PRESS RELEASE: Panamanian Association of Dieticians/ Nutritionists calls for nutrition labelling in Panama

The XVII Congress of the Latin American Society of Nutrition (SLAN 2015) is being held in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, from 8 to 12 November 2015. The Panamanian Association of Dietitians/Nutritionists (APND) is taking this opportunity to raise awareness for the need of regulation on nutrition labelling in Panama. The country still faces challenges due to the lack of norms and standards on nutrition labelling in the back of packages. Labelling is not standardised in format, content, nor even in language (many different languages can be found, from English, to Arab and Mandarin). APND is taking this message to SLAN 2015, and calls for support from international organizations to ensure that the country adopts standards for nutrition labelling in accordance with Codex Alimentarius guidelines.

Crowdfunding campaign to support research on “How to sit less at work”

Evidence-based interventions and procedures are central to public health and nutrition practice. One of the topics that has been hitting the headlines lately is sitting at work. Research found that lack of movement, including sitting for too long, has a negative impact on health. At the same time, many devices have appeared on the market, using health claims (i.e. improve health or even weight loss) with little scientific support. The Cochrane Work Group at the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health in Kuopio, Finland, are trying to find out which of the gadgets actually work and which ones do not raise to the promise. The group initiated a crowdfunding campaign in order to support the updating of a systematic review regarding this issue. People who want to get involved can support the initiative by participating in the campaign. After the campaign is closed, there will be a webinar, which will present the results and findings of the systematic review.Read More
