NYC Mayor Bloomberg: 'Government’s Highest Duty' Is to Push 'Healthy' Foods

Speaking on the government's role in diet and health last week, Bloomberg told the UN General Assembly, “There are powers only governments can exercise, policies only governments can mandate and enforce and results only governments can achieve. To halt the worldwide epidemic of non-communicable diseases, governments at all levels must make healthy solutions the default social option. That is ultimately government’s highest duty.”

Did he by any chance add that such "health foods" must come from the illegal settlements in Israel and must bear the barcode 729?
