What is the most controversial issue in nutrition

I teach college nutrition, mostly to heath care workers. It seems every topic we discuss has a controversial component - usually mentioned in the textbook but in little detail.

What do you think is the most controversial issue in nutrition today?

  • Jan 12 2013: Wow, that's a new one for me. Milk is correlated with a number of disorders - most of us certainly don't have enough of the enzyme lactase to break it down. Plus much of the calcium in milk is leached out in the urine. Recall no other mammal on earth drinks dairy past weaning age (never see a giraffe nursing as an adult:).

    I'm intrigued. You say you feel good? What other article are your referring to? Thanks!
