Inhlangano engenzi nzuzo i-International Life Science Institute ithi iqhuba “isayensi ukuze kuzuze umphakathi” “ethuthukisa impilo yabantu nenhlalakahle yayo futhi ivikele imvelo,” kodwa empeleni iyiqembu lezimboni zokudla, ngokusho isifundo esishicilelwe namhlanje kumagazini Ukusatshalaliswa Komhlaba kanye Nezempilo. 

Ucwaningo luhlinzeka ngezibonelo zokuthi i-ILSI izithuthukisa kanjani izintshisekelo zomkhakha wezokudla, ikakhulukazi ngokukhuthaza isayensi nezimboni ezinobungani embonini kubenzi bezinqubomgomo. Ucwaningo lususelwa kwimibhalo etholwe ngenkululeko yombuso yezicelo zolwazi ngu I-US Ilungelo Lokwazi, iqembu labacwaningi elingenzi nzuzo eligxile embonini yezokudla.  

Ababhali balolu cwaningo baphetha ngokuthi, “ILSI kufanele ithathwe njengeqembu lokwamukela izivakashi nokuthi izifundiswa nabaphenyi, abenzi bezinqubomgomo, abezindaba, kanye nomphakathi kufanele babheke ucwaningo lwe-ILSI njengokuqhakambisa izintshisekelo zezimboni zokudla, iziphuzo, izengezo kanye nezimboni zezolimo” futhi ukuthi izenzo zalo “ziphikisana nezinqubomgomo zomphakathi ezinempilo.”

"I-ILSI iyinethiwekhi ye-Big Food yomhlaba wonke yokunqoba ososayensi, abalawuli kanye nabanye abakhomba ubungozi bempilo yemikhiqizo yabo," kusho uGary Ruskin, umqondisi obambisene ne-US Right to Know. "IBig Food ifuna ukuthi ukholwe ukuthi i-ILSI iyayisebenzela impilo yakho, kepha empeleni ivikela inzuzo yemboni yokudla."

The Ukusatshalaliswa Komhlaba kanye Nezempilo Leli phepha labhalwa futhi nguSarah Steele, owayengumlingani omkhulu kwezocwaningo e-Jesus College nase-University of Cambridge; UGary Ruskin, umqondisi obambisene ne-US Right to Know; ULejla Sarcevic, ongumlingani ocwaningweni oluphezulu weForamu Yabacwaningi e-Jesus College, eCambridge; Martin McKee, uprofesa eLondon School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine; futhi, uDavid Stuckler, uprofesa eBocconi University.

NgoJanuwari, amaphepha amabili kaSolwazi waseHarvard uSusan Greenhalgh, e iBMJ futhi Ijenali Yenqubomgomo Yezempilo Yomphakathi, kwembulwa Ithonya elinamandla le-ILSI on uhulumeni waseChina maqondana nezinkinga ezihlobene nokukhuluphala.

I-ILSI ifakwe njengenhlangano engenzi nzuzo engu-501 (c) (3), ezinze eWashington DC.  Yasungulwa e1978 ngu-Alex Malaspina, owayeyiphini likamongameli omkhulu weCoca-Cola. Inamagatsha ayi-17 akhiwe emhlabeni wonke.

Njengesibonelo sendlela i-ILSI egcina ihambisana ngayo neCoca-Cola kanye nomkhakha wesoda, leli phephandaba licaphuna i-imeyili evela eMalaspina lapho ikhala khona ngokwehluleka kwe-ILSI Mexico ukulandela isikhundla semboni ngentela yesoda. IMalaspina ichaza “isiphithiphithi i-ILSI Mexico ekuso ngoba baxhasa ngoSepthemba ingqungquthela yabaswidi lapho kuxoxwa ngendaba yentela yeziphuzo ezibandayo. I-ILSI manje imisa okwesikhashana i-ILSI Mexico, baze balungise izindlela zabo. Impi yangempela. ”

“Okutholakele kwethu kuqhubeka kuphela nokwengeza ebufakazini bokuthi le nhlangano engenzi nzuzo isetshenziswe ngabaxhasi bayo bezinkampani iminyaka ukuphikisana nezinqubomgomo zezempilo zomphakathi. Siphikisa ngokuthi i-International Life Sciences Institute kufanele ithathwe njengeqembu lezimboni - inhlangano yangasese - futhi ilawulwe kanjalo, hhayi njengomzimba osebenzela inzuzo enkulu, ”kusho umlobi oholayo ocwaningweni uDkt Sarah Steele, umcwaningi eCambridge's UMnyango Wezepolitiki Nezifundo Zamazwe Omhlaba.

Imibhalo evela ocwaningweni lwe-ILSI izothunyelwa e-University of California, eSan Francisco's Ingobo yomlando Yemibhalo Yezimboni Zokudla, In the Iqoqo le-US Right to Know Food Industry.
