Confused about food?


If you need something to depress you, look no further than the second National Nutritional Literacy Survey, a recent, statistically significant poll of 1,000 American adults.

At the time of the original 1989 survey, 53 percent of those responding didn't know that vegetable shortening was high in saturated fat. And in 1991, even more people are answering incorrectly (58 percent).

In the 1991 survey, 72 percent know that white streaks in meat are fat, compared to 61 percent in 1989.
