Improving food labels

betterfoodlabel

foodlabeltilapiaLisa Fields tweeted a picture of a food label (see right) saying: “Why make it so hard to figure out food safety.” Intriguing is also the first line: “This product was prepared from inspected and passed meat and/or poultry”, knowing the product is tilapia. And indeed the label is not only messy but does not carry the essential information.

    Brilliant. Now imagine how useful this would be for prescription drug warning information (handed out in USA with every prescription). Both food AND prescription drugs are a huge application of mind mapping (and way to get rich providing a social important service).

  2. Hans,
    I’m blown away by the dramatic improvement you made for my fish label. The label was so small and as you mentioned it didn’t even have the information I needed. Each time I see another example of your work I become even more convinced that mind mapping is not only beautiful but it can dramatically improve our quality of life.

    George is spot on in his recommendations for including mind mapping for prescription drug labels.

    Hans, I honor both your work and your vision.

    Thank you,
    Lisa
