We used to look up at the sky and wonder at our place in the stars, now we just look down and worry about our place in the dirt.
We can all pretty much agree that soda is unhealthy and kale is healthy. But there are lots of foods on the soda-to-kale continuum whose nutritional value is murky.
For example, what is the deal with granola? Frozen yogurt? Red meat? And are you supposed to eat butter or never eat it?
To answer all this, the New York Times hired a polling firm to ask hundreds of nutritionists (all members of the American Society for Nutrition) whether they considered certain foods healthy. The firm also asked the same question of "a representative sample of the American electorate."
It turns out that there's some agreement and a fair amount of disagreement about the nutritiousness of the foods we eat every day.
For example, regular people surveyed overwhelmingly thought that frozen yogurt, granola, granola bars, and orange juice were healthy, while nutritionists surveyed overwhelmingly thought that they were not.
And then there are foods that are considered healthy by nutritionists, but the public doesn't seem to realize their value.
And, of course, there are some foods that everyone can agree are generally healthy.
And everyone seemed to more or less agree that certain foods are unhealthy.
And since it wouldn't be a conversation about nutrition unless things got ~murky~, there are a bunch of foods that people had mixed feelings about.
Just over half of each group surveyed described the following foods as healthy: pork chops, steak, whole milk, cheddar cheese, and popcorn.
