Do you read food labels before making a decision to purchase food product?


Sometimes reading food labels can be difficult. After all, who knows what half the listed ingredients are. Many can't even be pronounced. Do you read food labels before making a decision to purchase food products? Would you still buy a particular item if you don't know what particular ingredients are? Or, do you just avoid the items with ingredients you know are bad for you?

    Thank you for commenting, American_Choices. When I read that decisions were being made to not label "aspartame" on milk earlier this year, I was appalled. That chemical additive is so dangerous to health. It even affected my own health. :(

    Glad to hear you're living a healthy lifestyle, Souther29. And, oh my! on the fast food... how true on the after effects. :(

    Paula, I agree so much! I am very much like you. My husband now goes shopping with me to make sure I don't spend the whole day out. Thankfully, most foods I purchase are meats and produce, so I don't have to read too many labels. It is a scary thing!

    Thanks for answering, KL. I'm glad you don't have any problems with corn. Unfortunately, more than 90% of corn in the U.S. is genetically modified and is one of the highest inflammatory foods there is. Countering the effects with greens is good too.

    Most definitely, Ben. Are you vegetarian or vegan? I'm just asking because some vegetarians also have meat in the way of chicken, turkey, fish, and eggs. In any event, you would still have to watch your labels for beef and other meats.
