Yeah. I kind of stopped reading most magazines because of this.
This is why it's very important to find out where these "studies" are being held, and who is funding them. For instance, the Heart Association may say eggs are bad for your cholesterol, but the FDA (who are often funded by corporations) will tell you that eggs are GREAT for you (because this helps their benefactors sell more eggs and hence, give them more money). <br />
Just do your homework about where your info comes from, and use your brain, you'll be fine.
im waiting for the day they say drinking gallons of draft beer is good for you. then i will say "i told ya so!"
Eggs good. Jogging bad. Drugs good. Eating faces bad.
I would hope not.
This is inevitable because of the nature of scientific method.
Science doesn't deliver absolute truths. It pursues a theory, tests it, and comes up with an answer based on that research. But often there are other aspect to the same question and we don't know the whole until we've tried every angle. With something as complex as the human body its not surprising that knowledge needs to be continually refined and updated.
If we want a good guide to what's healthy look at how Bushmen live in the Kalahari - lots of aerobic exercise, whole fresh cooked and raw foods in balanced proportions and amounts, no drugs, lots of social time together to relax.
Those experts are bought and paid for. They're also getting sued on every channel.
Yes, its anoying.
The basic truth about what is healthy, fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes (beans). It is against Federal law in the United States to advertise that eggs are healthy. The producers of eggs can say they are fresh but they cannot say they are healthy. They get fined for it when they do. Eggs are not healthy in any way. And no the white protein part isn't healthy either. Think about it. An egg contains everything (all the DNA) to create another being. Eyes, feathers, limbs, feet. Consuming that in any form is not healthy for you.
