Study Shows Twinkies Lower Cholesterol?

Study Shows Twinkies Lower Cholesterol?

Everywhere we look, we are inundated with the latest results from scientific research studies regarding diet and health. One report encourages us to eat a particular food item, when another report warns us not to. Ever wonder why there's so much conflicting data?

Dr. Michael Greger's video informs us how these studies can be biased, depending on who conducts the study, how it is performed, and whether economic incentives are involved. He illustrates this fact by creating an entertaining scenario portraying Twinkies having impressive cholesterol lowering abilities. Dr. Greger then demonstrates how proponents of the meat and dairy industry use this approach to promote the sale of their products. We may want to take this into consideration the next time we hear studies promoting the health benefits from these items.
