There have been a lot of misconceptions about food among people. Most people do lack the proper knowledge on nutrition where there seems to have been a generally accepted consensus on what food or ingredient should be eaten or not. Food nutrition is actually a very complicated matter that needs more studies and understanding. A lot of the facts about certain foods are not much clearly defined.
