What It Is: Originally developed by Britain's Food Standards Agency, the system aims to communicate important information to shoppers at a glance. Color-coded traffic light labels — red (high), amber (medium) and green (low) — indicate levels of calories, sugars, fats and sodium in a food.

Pros: Because the government is behind the system, the program is less likely to be influenced by industry. Research has shown that British consumers use the system actively. The FDA is now studying consumer response to a similar program in the U.S.

At a Bravo supermarket on a recent weekday evening in Brooklyn, N.Y, shopper Jamilya Shroud-Garrett looks for a breakfast cereal for her son. She points to a box of Cheerios, which has a banner-style label bearing the message, "Can help lower cholesterol," and dismisses it as ridiculous. "It's common sense. If you have high cholesterol, it's not going to help to eat two bowls of cereal," she says.

KUALA LUMPUR: There seemed to be an "understanding" between government enforcement officers, especially when it comes to enforcing road rules.

This "apparent agreement" was evident yesterday at a roadblock in Jalan Raja Laut here, which was mounted to nab motorists who did not wear seat-belts in the ongoing "Buckle up" campaign.

Study: Too Much Sugar Increases Heart Risks PDF Print E-mail

By nature, people like sweet foods — really, really sweet foods, apparently. Americans now consume 19% more added sugar in their daily diet than they did in 1970, according to recent figures from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

While it's no secret that all that excess sweetness has helped add inches to the average American waistline — and probably sprouted an extra cavity or two — a new study reveals some less obvious health risks that come with consuming too much added sugar: it can also lead to dangerously high levels of blood fats, and raise the risk of heart disease as much as a diet full of high-fat foods.

Ever since Yoon Hyuk-joo, a 16-year-old in Seoul, started playing the popular computer game StarCraft eight years ago, studying has taken the backseat. For six hours every day in dim, smoky Internet cafes known in the South Korean capital as "PC Bangs," Yoon leads a squad of soldiers in Battlefield Online and then maims the undead in Counter-Strike: Zombies. His idols aren't your usual baseball players or Korean pop-music stars: the high-school student looks to inspiration from Lim Yo-hwan, known in South Korea as "The Emperor." Lim is one of the most successful professional StarCraft players of all time, whose celebrity has spurred fans to label him and his actress girlfriend as the South Korean equivalent of Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore.
