Ensar and Nikhil, I think you are both right. I certainlly agree 100% with your mindset Ensar, and live my life in a similar manner. Avoid petrochemicals as much as humanly possible and eat foods for which the ingredients are ones I can see and identify. Having said that, I am certainly a "scientist" by training and career choice. The advancements in my field, for example, have been nothing short of revolutionary, and this is during my career. Unfortunately, what is sold as true science may often really be junk science. The research about food, cholesterol being one example. Much false information has been regurgitated to the public by manipulated studies funded by big business interests. And the typical sheeple mentality swallows it hook line and sinker, even if it may go against even their most basic sense of logic and life experiences. I am definitely not 'that guy'. These are some of uncle kesiro's universal truths to live by: 1) question everything, especially if it does not sit well in your mind 2) too much of a good thing is bad, and I mean of ANYTHING 3) correlation is NOT causation until proven so 4) most of what we are told, by media/news is at best dubious, but often wrong, and certainly slanted 5) avoid petrochemicals and processed food like the plaque Of course, YMMV.
