A study funded by the National Confectioners Association finds, among other things: “Frequency of candy consumption was not associated with the risk of obesity”.
Um… pardon? I always believe that moderation is key (and so does one of the comments in the referenced link) and that’s something that many doctors reference. However, this is saying that there is no correlation between amount and added weight.
What’s interesting is that some people will actually hold onto this. It amazes me how there are actually scientists, even among the tobacco groups, that will actually put their names on such reports.
I guess it does go into all in how the study is conducted. Maybe they feel OK with “reporting the facts” of the study, even if the study itself was put together with an intended slant.
