Beware Of Foods Marketed As “Healthy” – Including Some Veggies

July 24, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Some vegetables and other foods normally considered or marketed as “healthy” – compared to junk foods high in fat, sugar or salt – may actually be detrimental if excessive amounts are eaten, according to a U.S. university dietitian. Worrisome foods include those claimed to be healthy – e.g., “low fat” or “fat free” foods – that may be high in sugar or calories. Vegetables that should be eaten in moderation because they are high in starch include peas, corn and potatoes.
