Dieters must exercise responsibility, panel says

Slimmers have the right to know how much a diet program will cost and how well it is likely to work, but they must also take responsibility for themselves, a joint government-consumer panel agreed Friday.

The panelists agreed to form a partnership among government, scientists, consumers and the diet industry to come up with a way to educate dieters about various programs.
