The problem here is that you don't know if the science that you're quoting is correct, or is just a load of prejudice and opinion that has been transformed into something that looks like a proper scientific analysis/experiment by someone who knows he'll get published. And what about all the studies that show antioxidants are useful? Are you saying that one study of intestinal cancer automatically invalidates all the previous studies? Maybe you're playing devils advocate, Glenn, but for me all you've done is point out how unreliable science is at providing useful guidance on diet. Read one study - chips are good for you, read abother and they are more fatal than arsenic. We can choose our food at random or we can choose our scientific evidence at random and then use that to formulate a "healthy" diet. It's far easier to just choose option 1.
