There are a bunch of diet and nutrition myths going on nowadays! An example is the belief that low-fat food won't make you gain much weight. Truth is, however, food labeled as low fat usually has higher sugar content. WEIRD, RIGHT?

Marketing has influenced much of our decision-making behaviour. A fatty drink could be marketed as a healthy alternative by emphasising certain ingredients that are commonly known for its health benefits; however, a massive ratio of sugar and calories is often unmentioned when such "health drinks" are advertised.
