I swear, in the last 20 years or so I've been aware of this "scientific study" crap it seems nearly everything has gone full circle, sometimes multiple times. What's good is actually bad until it's good again, etc. It's ridiculous.
There's so much "information" out there, you have to be a discerning consumer. You have to be able to tell the difference between a good article about a quality study (or ideally many of them) and a hastily written story in a "newspaper" that covers everything. Let's not even talk about advice from the diet industry about how we should interpret all the noise.

Fat is clearly not the monster it was made out to be. I've switched from 2% to whole milk, and lately I've been trying to drink more of it in place of Nuun water after hard rides, because of all the stuff we've learned to be true.

If you believe people can't know anything about nutrition because it's too confusing, I don't know why you'd want to frequent a nutrition subforum?
