And that's the key that the industries go for....most people have no idea. If it's in the news and from a study, it is true.

Heard this one on the radio today--try not be shocked--nutritional studies funded by people who sell food stuff (e.g., Dairy Council, etc.)...ready for this?...tend to be more favorable toward the food in question than research not supported by that food entity!!!

Yeah, but I got a gold star. Take that, egg council.

Is there a "grass-fed beef" council? I'd totally believe what they say.

A "beer council?"
