Petition Make it mandatory all processed meat products carry a Government health warning

In 2015 the World Health Organisation classified all processed meat products as group 1 carcinogens after extensive studies proved them to be a known cause of colorectal cancer
To date the Government has not acted responsibly and failed to make this information widely known to the general public.

More details

We would like to see a proper campaign to enlighten the public of the health risks if they are consuming these products, starting with making it mandatory to include a Government health warning on the packing of all processed meat products and removing all processed meat products from schools.
