Deception is rampant in the food industry, and as a result, typical retailer shelves are full of products which are marketed as having health benefits, despite the fact that most of them are more damaging to us than the "unhealthy" products that they replace.  As a general rule, you should beware whenever you see labels such as " diet ", " sugar free ", " fat free "," no trans fats ", or " with omega 3 ".  These are booby traps.
