15 Foods That Don’t Deserve Their Health Halo

The produce department manager, George, at my local grocery store once told me he’s responsible for about 500-600 fresh produce items, most of which he has to turn over (arrange and sell) within 36 hours to meet store standards for freshness and appearance.

In a way, I think he’s got it right. The wrong foods tend to get the most promotion in our marketing culture, while the best choices remain the proverbial wallflowers.
