Modern food mythology

posted by Jason Kottke   Mar 24, 2009

Several food experts share their favorite misconceptions about what and how we eat.

One big myth is that fruit juice is a healthy part of our diet. Wrong. Drinking a glass of fruit juice a day โ€” which is the equivalent of one soft drink of 110 to 180 calories โ€” has been linked in the U.S., Australia and Spain to increased calorie intake and higher risks of diabetes and heart disease.

Also: kosher != quality.
