Obesity is the second-leading cause of preventable death after tobacco, and is the only major public health issue in America that is actually getting worse. In 2008 New York City pioneered the requirement that chain restaurants post calorie counts and one year after our law went into effect, not only did customers say they used the information to make decisions but those customers purchased fewer calories than their counterparts. The decision by McDonald’s to post calorie counts in all U.S. restaurants will give consumers more information about the choices they make, and I want to thank McDonald’s CEO Don Thompson for his leadership on this important public health issue.
