Many People Ignore, Miss Calorie Counts on Fast-Food Menus: Survey

15 November 2013, WebMed, Kathleen Doheny -- "Of 2,000 customers, 40 percent noticed the information and 10 percent used it.

 

Posting the calorie content of menu items at restaurants is designed to make diners stop and think, tally up the total and make wiser choices.

In real life, that doesn't seem to be the case, according to new research.

 

In a poll of 2,000 Philadelphia fast-food customers, aged 18 to 64, few used the information, even if they noticed it, said study author Brian Elbel, an assistant professor of population health and health policy at the NYU School of Medicine.

 

"Forty percent of the sample saw it and about 10 percent [overall] said they used it and reported to us that they purchased fewer calories," he said.

 The study is published in the November issue of the journal Obesity. Elbel is scheduled to present the findings Friday at the Obesity Society's annual meeting in Atlanta. ..."

I agree that long term chronic toxicological feeding studies should be required. Since feeding studies are already done, it should not be too difficult to do long term (lifetime) studies.

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, November 19, 2013 5:55 PM

There is some inconsistency here. The food manufacturers and the Grocery Marketing Assn see no need for GMO food labeling. People are getting sick from GMO food. Why is there so much resistence to labeling if there is no problem with GMO food. Why are people getting sick and even dying from it if there is nothing wrong with GMO food? Either GMOs are okay or they are not. Why does this mixed message persist and why do GMO companies resist labeling? Is someone not telling the truth?

My Life Check - Life's Simple 7™

My Life Check - Life's Simple 7™ | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

Learn about the state of your heart and what you can do to live better. Take the My Life Check Assessment. I recommend reviewing the American Heart Association’s Life’s Simple 7 to learn about your cardiovascular health in a patient-friendly format. You can go through the Life’s Simple 7 assessments and bring those numbers, as well as your questions, to your doctor.

Just recently a patient with a family history of heart disease asked, “Am I doing everything I can to avoid developing coronary heart disease as I get older?” We looked at the computer in my office together for an introduction to Life’s Simple 7.

I also explained how to sign up on the AHA’s Heart360 website, where you can enter and track personal cardiovascular health information (such as blood pressure, weight, glucose and cholesterol measurements, and medications). It was easy. And within less than 15 minutes we were linked up on Heart360, which patients and doctors can use to communicate online — quickly and securely — about a patient’s health."

The SEVEN are listed but the website does a great job explaining each in detail:

1.  Get Active 

2. Control Cholesterol

3. Eat Better

4. Manage Blood Pressure

5.  Lose Weight

6. Reduce Blood Sugar

Andrew Saul, Orthomolecular Medicine News Service editor, apologizes for NBC's vitamin ignorance | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

I would like to apologize for NBC News. It seems that the organization that brought us Lowell Thomas, John Cameron Swayze, Chet Huntley and David Brinkley has lowered its standard of reporting.

 

NBC's supplement-bashing headline article, "Vitamins don't prevent heart disease or cancer, experts find" displays an ignorance of clinical nutrition that is difficult to ignore, and, thanks to its media prominence, can't be. 

 

Of vitamin supplementation, NBC specifically said that a "very extensive look at the studies that have been done show it may be a waste of time when it comes to preventing the diseases most likely to kill you."

 

The "very extensive look" encompassed 24 preselected studies. It looks like they just possibly may have missed a few...
