The Online Lunacy Never Ends: Fattening Vegetables?

The beginning of October 2015 brought an onslaught of articles seemingly everywhere online warning against “fattening” vegetables. Hopefully you rolled your eyes at this absurdity. Yes! It’s because of veggies that obesity is out of control on this planet! Let’s keep shoving fast food down our gullets washed down with plenty of sodas and frappacinos, followed by a toaster strudel “Now with 30% more frosting!” for dessert — but keep away from those fresh peas!
The internet is all about provoking a response so that the reader will click through, which makes for some pretty manipulative click baiting — and nobody likes being manipulated.
