Argument: Consumers have a right to know calories in meals
Karen Springen. "Full Disclosure". Newsweek. November 14, 2008: "The other important reason [for calorie counts] is just consumers' right to know. You have whatever clothing you're wearing now. It has the tag on it that says where it's made and what it's made of. Why? You deserve to know. When you buy a packaged food, it says what's in it. Consumers would be upset if that information was taken away."
