I suppose I'd agree that

I suppose I'd agree that people should figure out their own diet and exercise regimen (my own post supports that idea)... but I don't know that all of the contradictory health information helps this at all.

Most of the health information out in the media comes from "the latest study" and a lot of them say the same thing -- whatever the most recent and most popular view point is. This just has people flipping back and forth: carbs, no carbs, carbs, no carbs! I would feel better if the media collectively waited for all relevant information before spouting out the latest "facts" and confusing all of these non-health professionals trying to sort out their daily exercise regimen on their own.
