Some Common Myths Associated with Food Debunked

Food myths are common and sometimes entertaining. It was probably your mother who told you not to believe everything you read. Food myths are often as ridiculous as “urban myths” – sometimes partially true, and sometimes even dangerous! The following are four common myths that have been popular in recent years and which we here attempt to debunk with solid scientific evidence taken from current literature. Having said this with tongue in cheek, we all know of food- related truisms that have changed because the science has taken a closer look in search of the unadulterated truth. For example, we once believed that animal fats (butter, lard, tallow, etc.) were less healthy than vegetable fats (oils manufactured from canola, soy, corn, sunflower, etc.). We now know that for heart health, the total amount of fat in the diet is far more important than the type of fat – but for at least one exception: fish oil. The following examples are provided in the light of the most recent scientific knowledge available, but that isn’t to say that things won’t change with time!
