I appreciate the "All American" let’s not legislate mentality of the forums. I mean I also would prefer that people do what’s right because it is right and not because they are forced to do it. Unfortunately, it seems that the food industry is looking very much like the tobacco industry – they are purposefully lying about the contents of their products and the health effects of their products. I think it is almost impossible to know what you are actually eating these days in packaged foods (somewhat) and in restaurants (almost completely). The information about calorie and fat content given by restaurants is almost always based on a much smaller sample size than you are ever actually served. Most people don’t really realize a lot of what they are eating isn’t food. And until they realize it, they’ll continue to eat whatever they are served. And the food companies will continue to serve the cheapest food they can – however unhealthy it is. Laws forcing the food industry to change their ways may be like the moves to restrict cigarette and alcohol sales or to put seat belts in cars – we know smoking and drinking and driving without seat belts are dangerous, so we try to restrict the first 2 and encourage the latter – people still smoke and drink and drive without seat belts (hopefully not at the same time) but we try to reduce the risk for the majority.
