Reading labels a good idea

To the Journal editor:

How interesting that March was Reading Month and also Nutrition Month.

What a great time to start reading about the things we put into and on our bodies. I am trying to become more informed by reading labels and not purchasing foods that are “distributed by.” We have no idea about how they are grown and where. Sometimes we don’t know what they contain.

Please join me in trying to be a better consumer and buying products made in the U.S. for a start. We can keep Americans working.
