Your guide to the FDA's new Nutrition Facts label
from By Natalie Thomas
It's no secret that America's pants are ripping at the seams. A recent CDC study found the rate of obesity in the United States is still continuing its upward trajectory. To put the numbers into perspective, health officials expressed concern in 1997 when 19.4 percent of American adults were obese. In 2015, that figure was 30.4 percent — and still rising. To help combat the obesity issue, the FDA recently announced the finalization of the new and improved Nutrition Facts label.
