The authors reflect on the partnership between the food industry and health organizations that manage the public health nutrition. They mention that partnerships offer food industry confusion benefit, wherein the food industry seeks to emphasize that inactivity and not the consumption and promotion of its calorie-rich products. They say that the partnerships should compose unconditional arm's-length grants with clauses restricting how corporations use health organization brands.
