Maybe Listing Calories On Restaurant Menus Really IS Helping

Researchers at Tufts University found that, because of calorie counts on menus, diners in the U.S. eat an estimated 20 to 60 calories less per meal. That may not sound like a lot, but according to the research, collectively that’s enough to prevent 28,000 cancer cases and 16,700 deaths, while saving the U.S. economy $2.8 billion in healthcare costs.
