We don’t know why, but poor health information surrounds us everywhere. Down right lies, some of it. And the general public has no way of knowing if what they hear, read or see is authentic or merely bogus.
Is it the media sensationalizing information for a “compelling story.” Is it government agencies in cahoots with some industry looking to squash the competition? What if it’s the companies themselves misrepresenting their goods? Then again, it could be simple ignorance.
