Pursuing nutritional paths, is a healthy endeavor! But we need to educate ourselves to be discerning and critical of this category of information as it is also prey to marketing methods that twist truth and, often, completely lie. Just as our body needs “REAL FOOD” and “WHOLE FOOD,” so too does our mind need REAL INFORMATION, TRUE INFORMATION, and CONTEXTUAL INFORMATION about nutrition and the foods we are eating.
I recommend reading the noted article here as just one example of long term nutritional marketing methods that lull us into reliance on “publication credentials” to change our eating habits over common sense and historical food to guide the way.
