Calorie labeling: Solution to obesity?Created by:
Recently I read news that some states in the US mandated fast food calorie labeling. This program is expected to start May of next year. Although there have been conflicting studies on this new mandate, I remain very optimistic. Obesity is a global epidemic that is known to cause other medical problems. I hope that all nations with adapt this policy on calorie labeling. In fact, I also want to include other food products (not limited to fast food) so that consumers become more conscious and aware on their daily caloric intake. Do you think that this form of policy has the potential to address the worldwide problem on obesity?
