Hardly a week goes by without a media story about some expert somewhere issuing a new report declaring that a particular food or vitamin or activity or condition will either contribute to your cardiovascular health or ruin it. Frequently the new advice seems to contradict the old.
 
What’s a person to do about the growing list of health recommendations that have been recently tweaked, changed or outright discarded? This trend has left many consumers baffled, annoyed and discouraged. Should you count calories, carbs or fat grams?  Is coffee good or bad for you?  Do antibiotics cause breast cancer? Does Ginko Biloba help memory? With so much hype, how do you know what to believe?
