With Labels, Less Can Be More

At the risk of sounding like a cranky old lady (I am, after all, old enough to have trouble reading fine
print), I am going to point out that the labels on over-the-counter medicines are freaking ridiculous and highly irritating.

Who were the geniuses at the FDA who decided they had to cram a bunch of boilerplate that no one reads on every medicine bottle, to the point that they made finding the dosage information (the only information you really need, the information that actually could keep you from hurting yourself) difficult? Sometimes, you even have to peel back the label and read underneath and on the flip side of it to find how much to take, how often.
