Can you recall a time when you were given bad advice or unknowingly followed bad advice? What happened? How did you learn from this?

Far too often companies and individuals try to profit off the ignorance of others or simply try to deceive them. It may not always be an outright lie but sometimes they choose to share favorable info while hiding the rest. This is especially common in the dietetics/nutrition field and it had lead to some people making ill informed decisions so I`d like to know, can you think of a time when you were misled or took bad advice.
