Reuters
(NaturalNews) After a new scientific study found that omega-3's helped prevent brain shrinkage during aging, a Reuters reporter named Shereen Jegtvig decided she didn't like what the study said. So she wrote a headline stating precisely the opposite of what the study found, and Reuters published it. The new Reuters headline, emblazoned across hundreds of websites, reads, "Omega-3 intake linked to signs of brain aging."

The headline is, of course, a total lie. Omega-3 intake is actually linked to a reduction of the signs of brain aging.

Reuters even knows their headline is a total lie, as their own story text says, "The researchers found that women with the highest EPA and DHA blood levels at the study's outset had brains that were about two cubic centimeters larger overall than women with the lowest levels."

So why did they say the opposite in their headline? Because they know most people only read the headline and not the story text! It's easy to lie to your readers when you have a big name like Reuters, because people automatically trust your headlines -- even if they are blatantly false!

Here's a picture of the headline as it ran on Yahoo News:



Honesty of mainstream media journalism is in total collapse

As one of the few honest journalists left in America -- it's a fast-shrinking list -- I am seeing this sort of dishonest journalism with alarming frequency. In fact, just two days ago, I exposed the Associated Press for "restructuring" old EPA news from 2009 and pushing it as "breaking" news in 2014.

The funny thing is that in that story, I praised Reuters for doing a much better job on reporting. Looks like I spoke too soon: now Reuters is intentionally disparaging omega-3 oils in some sort of sick, twisted campaign against nutrition.

No doubt if a prescription drug resulted in slowed brain shrinkage, Reuters would praise the finding with a headline like, "Miracle drug halts age-related brain shrinkage!" But because this study was conducted on a dietary supplement, the headline gets intentionally twisted into a blatant lie.

Mainstream media colludes to disparage nutrition and censor scientific findings

Now you know the real truth about the mainstream media and nutrition: There is a genuine conspiracy against nutrition being run by the media. These writers knowingly conspire to mislead readers and thereby deny them access to the real scientific findings that might have improved their health.

No wonder Natural News keeps growing by leaps and bounds: it's one of the very few places remaining where you can get honest journalism on health, nutrition and critical (skeptical) thinking about food, health and holistic living.

He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.
