They both want what is good for consumers and they want to inform the public. However, they both fail to include important parts to their argument. Balko brings up several ideas that some would think to be ridiculous and his explanation for these ideas is too-flawed to be taken seriously.

It would be very easy to label everything, require companies to let consumers know every single ingredient and in turn, hope to increase global health levels. However, it seems that opposing side has very strong arguments and companies are reluctant to sacrifice their profits in order to improve consumers health, which, very interestingly, is sometimes argued would not be achieved by doing so
This would have an effect on society as it allows the participants to improve their quality of life. A negative effect that Weight Watcher’s has to society is that it can be rather costly for some people who may not be able to afford the food regime.

But by checking the nutrition facts, buying cheaper food, and avoiding processed foods, it can help American people begin to eat healthier. This omnivore’s dilemma started when America let junk, processed, and fast foods to take our health in different directions and not the right direction. So many people out there know what is out there and those people are doing the right thing by keeping it at a balance. Many other places go through this impasse on what to eat and what not to eat.

Although it is beneficial and almost essential for the continued economic sustainability of this system, studies show that it has a detrimental effect on public health.
