    Health Claims On Junk Foods Are Dangerous

    Health claims on junk foods are dangerous because people believe the claims and then mistake the product for "healthy" or even for "real food." These are some of my favorite ridiculous health claims on food items.  All of these items are in my kitchen right now because my...
