It seems like every day the newspapers print some rubbish about fitness or nutrition. The headline is more often than not scary and sensationalist. No surprises there then. I mean, the job of the press isn't to educate you (perhaps controversial nut unfortunately true) but to sell papers. Using click-bait headlines that evoke emotional responses from readers is the most tried and tested way of doing this.
I sat there as a young, impressionable, budding nutritionist, absorbing all the information I was being told by a nutrition guru I looked up to at the time. Information that I now know to be complete BS.
