New scientific discoveries prompt us to rethink our current understanding of food and nutrition. Universal dietary guidelines often fail to account for individual metabolism and gut flora variations. Our research highlights the shortcomings of using calories as a sole measure and the potential harm of overemphasizing calorie counting. Instead of labeling foods as strictly "good" or "bad," we propose a nuanced approach. We can improve our health and the environment by questioning the perceived benefits of foods like fish, critically examining the diagnostics of the food allergy industry, and challenging the rationale behind bottled water’s popularity.
