Nutrition labels will get revamped

Here's an interesting article on the new nutritional labeling happening next year. Although it's a good thing, people have a hard time reading nutrition labels as it is. Plus, half of them are incorrect when you do the actual mathematical calculations. Perhaps, it will be helpful, but I am not holding my breath on it.

I am skeptical also, I don't like the idea of the score system, since no diet is universally right for everyone, and it just seems unnecessarily complicated.

I think that they should add caffeine content to the nutrition labels, though. Coca-Cola has started doing this, not on the actual nutrition lable but next to it as part of the "fine print."
