U.S. government may require nutritional information on restaurant menus

Of course the restaurant industry is balking at the idea of being required to add nutritional information to their menus. It''s not that they don''t want to reprint all their menus (although that is a consideration), it''s more than they don''t want to horrify their customers by revealing the frightening nutritional facts about their foods.

Restaurant food is typically loaded with ingredients that promote diseases like diabetes, obesity, heart disease, cancer and many more. Meals are typically very high in fat, high in refined carbohydrates, high in food additives and flavor enhancers like MSG, and served in over-sized portions that encourage people to overeat.

That breakfast at the local diner may only cost you five bucks in terms of dollars, but the real cost to your health is far greater. And the best way restaurants can conceal this fact is to simply make sure you never find out the nutritional facts of the food you''re eating there.

In other words, most restaurants want to keep you in the dark because they''re feeding you foods that will literally kill you.

Joseph Levitt, vice chairman of a Food and Drug Administration committee studying obesity, said last week that menu labels are among the many proposals the agency is considering to help people watch what they eat. Levitt said FDA officials are conferring with the restaurant industry, food processors and consumer groups to figure out whether it should issue new regulations or just write guidelines suggesting changes with the aim of helping consumers improve their eating habits.
