Re: Labelling (and promotion of sales)

The evidence you mention suggesting labelling might actually promote sales,
just points to the dire need for a wide education campaign, but definitely
clear comprehensive labelling is a must, precisely to allow whatever
portion of educated, conscientious consumers there may be to make an
informed decision.
I am obviously in favour of a general ban, but do not see it likely to
happen, labelling itself will be rather hard to implement.
