    We do look at food labels and I like the changes. But I also don't see any issue about it.

    Could be, but I would guess exaggeration.

    I've been a label reader for most of my life, so it won't change my habits any at all, except that it might give me a few more choices to consider.

    I'm against them. It encourages people to continue to suck at math.

    We should make things more challenging - not "dumbing it down" for our American Idol-loving populace.

    American Idol sucks. It's a bunch of canned, teenage talent displayed in a phony manner. The judges look like the 3 Stooges.


    The labels are no big deal with larger print, but forcing companies to NOT hide, unhealthy ingredients is a +1.

    Right, right, let's label the foods with calories per gram, and let the consumer figure it out. That will improve math skills.

    It's not as if people who actually look at labels cannot find out otherwise. There may be an exception to the workout granny with glaucoma, but everyone else knows the calorie count if they want to know the calorie count.

    I'm guessing that I won't go around hearing, "damn, I had no idea pudding was so bad for me".

    Well, wouldn't it? It'd go ahead and Darwin out the tards who had no idea that 2 cups of syrup on a short stack may not be the best thing to do.

    I'm not so sure the "tards" actually are capable of reading the labels in the first place, let alone be able to figure out how many calories constitute a reasonable consumption.

    Anything to stop people from trying to blame companies for their poor eating habits.

    No one made you eat that Big Mac.
