Food Myths and Legends

What are today's food myths and legends? On January 19,2010, this was the #FoodChat topic in a discussion hosted by Michele Payn-Knoper (@mpaynknoper) on Twitter.

The discussion was organized into nine questions.
  • What resources can help identify healthy foods?
  • What are some of the myths and legends about organic food?
  • How accurate are food healing myths/legends like chicken soup and ginger ale for a stomach ache?
  • How can we dispel the food myth to teens that eating ANY kind of fat is bad?
  • Should there be regulations on dollars spent to market/advertise food products to fight obesity?
  • What specific food myths or legends concern you most?
  • How does food labeling perpetuate or dispel food myths?
  • How can agriculture overcome food myths spread by marketing in the food industry?
  • What are you going to do differently or better as a result of being on #foodchat tonight?
The discussions about these questions are available at the #AgChat archives.

#FoodChat takes places once per month on Twitter. The discussion occurs every third Tuesday of the month, from 8:00 to 10:00 pm EST. To participate in the online chat session, use your Twitter name to log into or
