    @Kae – I think you are referring to this post:

    And your points are spot on. My biggest peeve was that numbers by themselves without the proper surrounding context means nothing.

    Seems like the YouTube CBS report above was just some tabloid journalism to get your attention and draw you into their report. CBS probably teased the broadcast viewers through an entire show before they ran that segment. After watching the segment, it seemed like there was nothing there. They even said that these “poisons” are in the foods we eat anyway. Seems like much ado about nothing.

    Hasn't it always been known that if you eat more protein that you need to drink more water? It's been known for a long time that patients with kidney problems have to limit their protein intake.

    There is a book called “Are We Scaring Ourselves to Death?….” and it sounds like the “report” generated more FUD than actual information. I'm kind of disappointed in Consumer Reports. I expected better reporting from them.
