Information about food is a jungle of beliefs, commercial agendas, real research and personal feelings.
Your rational mind enters into a battle to try to figure out simple facts.
Fruit is good for you?
Fruit is bad for you?

The facts are often distorted to try to make a point.
At the end it is often belief against belief or commercial agenda against commercial agenda.
