    A new study has found that if the fat and calorie content of their choices are posted, students choose the healthier alternative. I’m inclined to this applies to adults, too. I know that if I have time to study the nutrition data before I order, I’m much more likely to choose something relatively healthy. For example, a couples of months ago, I studied the nutrition data poster at Burger King while I was waiting for my food, and learned that they fry their foods in partially hydrogenated oil – that’s code for trans fatty acids, the kind that can bring on a heart attack. So now I won’t order anything fried there – not even french fries.
