Peanuts are good for you, but peanut butter is not!? That’s the crazy item we saw on the news this week. It’s another example of confusing scientific studies on food, combined with hasty media coverage.
I was alerted to this item by my observant and analytical husband, Harley. He was amused to see television hosts enthusiastic about research showing that peanuts are healthy but disappointed that the research didn’t show the same for peanut butter.
