Nutrition science is a science. But nutrtionism, the belief that what really matters in a food are the nutrients it contains, is not a science, but an ideology, and one that has led us badly astray. It classifies nutrients as good or evil, but over time those labels have been constantly changing. And that leaves us confused and vulnerable to questionable nutrient-based health claims.
