Thank you for this information-rich post.
I have written a "Food or Rubbish" series (posted in Gotoknow.org : https://www.gotoknow.org/posts...) from a view of public awareness of the issues of food (and implicitly NCD). At the time, I stressed the lack of (oficial) regulation and standard (enforcemernt). I have now added other factors : "urbanization", social media advertising, and expansion of food processing industry (due to global demand for food).
PMAC (Pre Medical Advisory Committee? (not Prince Mahidol Award Conference?) campaigns will need awareness of these "enviromental features" in the fight over NCD.
Maybe we can use some (of 500+) police "generals" gainfully in PMAC campagns in Thailand?
