LOL - I stopped listening to the "so called" medical expert "faux facts" some time ago. Eat things in moderation. Medical opinions are like AH's, everybody has one.

Some of these "myths" are not entirely factual the way that they are stated. GMO's are one of the biggest human experiments carried on without ANY scientific data to document their safety!! The FDA has many ties with big corporations with questionable practices. Artificial sweeteners have conflicting data and were approved for use despite protests from Nutrition scientists, particularly aspartame! They stimulate appetite & do NOT help with weight loss! There are many complex hormonal pathways involved with metabolic reactions and this "quiz" oversimplifies the statements. Your information is dated and misleading. Our food supply is polluted with chemicals that are not easily broken down and excreted from the human body. This should be taken off the site by Quiz Club! I agree with Chuck Murphy's comment!!

Gluten intolerance is not rare. I have two sisters and umpteen cousins who are gluten intolerant. Also a large percentage of people in Ireland and Italy are as well

Vivian Junkin, Yes. Monsanto paid for the study where lab mice were feed 10 times their body weight daily in Sodium Saccharine. The mice that didn't explode or die from obesity developed cancer. Monsanto just happened to have Aspertame waiting to replace Sodium Saccharine. However Aspertame was only created and tested as a cattle feed additive. Imagine a medical study where a 150 pound person is force fed 1500 pounds of food a day.
