Desserts

In the United States, they try to take the necessary steps so that consumers enjoy food with knowledge of the facts, knowing what is ingested and how many calories are being contributed to the body can help reduce overweight and obesity. For this reason, those responsible for the health services in New York are going to try again to force fast food chains to incorporate the information on the calories of the products they advertise on the posters they place on their counters to promote their products. Information is vital and that is why the New York Board of Health will once again ask Burger King or McDonald's, among other establishments, to indicate the calories of each product in the same way that their prices stand out and already, it would not hurt to include a short nutritional summary. Those responsible for health believe that this will allow consumers to react and realize that simply with lunch they could be ingesting up to half of the calories they need during the current day (about 2000 calories) and must be taken into account that there are still some meals to be made.

What is funny is that a judge vetoed the plan to force fast foods to include calories in the large posters, as if he did not know the relationship it has with the high rate of overweight and obesity that is suffered in the United States. Would you receive an envelope under the table? Many of the health problems suffered, such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, etc., are directly related to excess weight and fast food chains are also aware of this, but apparently they care more about the economic benefit than the health of its customers.
