As with other areas of education:
It’s not that what’s presented needs refinement, nor that customers/consumers/students need more assistance, it’s that WHEN SOMEONE DOESN’T CARE, NOTHING WILL HELP THEM.

Everybody knows a bag of chips and a soda makes for an unhealthy meal. Putting detailed data, running PSAs, and adding a frowny face won’t discourage someone who decides to make that lunch nonetheless.

At some point people make their own decisions and enjoy/suffer the consequences.

if this program is ANYTHING like EnergyStar some James O’Keefe type will submit a jar of arsenic and it will come back with the low trans-fats and low calorie seal of approval.

If there weren’t nationalized health care, then fat people would not be so expensive. But, even withouot Obamacare, the system in place means everyone pays for unhealthy lifestyles.

I do not see how more transparency and clarity on labels causes harm. To say that it will not work without attempting it, is absurd.

The comparison to energy efficiency labels for appliances is relevant. They have, indeed, been proven to influence behaviour.

Anything that’s actually good for you will soon be deemed a drug and tightly regulated.
