How to Weed Out Misinformation
I had a little online chat with Anne McShane of the Feel Good Store this morning about an article which she posted on Twitter. It presumed to answer the question of whether red meat should be included in a healthy diet, or not. While this question may lead to a fruitful exploration of regimenal principles, this article was so chock-full of myths and misinformation, that I was inspired to use it as an example of what to look out for in health advice.
The myths and misinformation it was based on includes:
- “Mommy, Am I Too Young To Go To Jail?”
- When is McDonald’s Good For You?
