RESEARCHERS FOUND THAT PEOPLE TEND TO LET THEIR GUARDS DOWN AFTER CHECKING IN ON FACEBOOK AND MORE SPLURGES WERE REPORTED.

SIMPLIFY SERVINGS-TRX-OC-VO


THIS IS A BIG HEADLINE BEFORE YOU HEAD OUT THE DOOR --

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS CONSIDERING CHANGES TO THOSE NUTRITION LABELS ON FOODS WE EAT.

AND WE COULD SEE WHAT THEY WILL LOOK LIKE LATER TODAY.

THE NEW FOOD LABELS ARE EXPECTED TO MAKE CALORIES BIGGER AND EASIER TO READ.

AND USE MEASUREMENTS THAT ARE EASIER FOR CONSUMERS TO UNDERSTAND - TEASPOONS INSTEAD OF GRAMS.

AND THE NEW LABELS ARE EXPECTED TO USE MORE REALISTIC SERVING SIZES - WHAT WE REALLY EAT:

SIMPLIFY SERVINGS-SOTVO


"Some of the serving sizes are a joke. A two ounce bagel or two ounce muffin - when was the last time anybody saw one of those? So companies pretend that a four ounce muffin is two servings. And so all the numbers are divided in half - half as much sugar, half as much fat half as many calories. So the FDA is trying to update that."

THE FDA SAYS CHANGING LABELS COULD COST THE FOOD INDUSTRY TWO BILLION DOLLARS. Return to index of stories...
