National Read Your Labels Day

Do you know every ingredient in the food you buy?

Citizens for Health, a respected consumer advocacy group founded in 1992, has officially declared April 11th National “Read Your Labels Day.” The organization hopes Americans will “get the 411” on what they’re consuming—and we couldn’t agree more!

From the Citizens for Health website:

The list of ingredients is the end credits of the movie, and without it you’d have no real idea what it took to create what you’re eating. That’s why we want you to stand up to the food industry and refuse to accept deceptive marketing ploys like references to nonexistent fruit or bogus claims of “no MSG.”

  5. I think that what you said was actually very logical. However, think about this, what if you were to create a killer post title? I am not suggesting your content is not good, however suppose you added a post title that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean BLOG_TITLE is kinda vanilla. You could look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create post headlines to grab viewers to click. You might add a related video or a pic or two to get readers interested about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it would make your website a little bit more interesting.|
