How do we read and understand nutritional information

This is a video from the Khan Academy. It shows how data can be read in  various way´s. If we read it in one way we get one outcome and if we read it differently we get another outcome.

It is a simple post from web-md, used  as an example of the difference between correlation and causality.

So it is no wonder that we get lost sometimes with all the health information. That is why we have to make it matter to us. Take a stand when it comes to our health. We can not take everything we read as the one and only truth. We have to evaluate where it comes from, what the original data is.

(and often we actually have to know sometimes who paid for the research to validate the outcome)

It sure is a jungle out there!
