First Free Write: Do you read food labels? If so, why? If not, why not? What information do you think should be included on food labels in the United States?

Yes I do read food labels, not religiously but probably about 85% of the time I do. I read the food labels because I want to know on an estimate how many calories I am eating and to see if there are any trans fats in the food product. I try to avoid trans fats as much as possible because they are so bad for you. I think the information on the food labels are pretty well put in the United States. One thing they could do is make the ingredients easier to read and easier to understand instead of having fourteen different ways to say that there is sugar in them.
