Since I read about health for fun (seriously), it's pretty hard to shock me about what foods are healthy and unhealthy. But this week's news that pomegranate juice really isn't that great for you… well, it shocked me. Earlier this week, a federal judge ruled that Pom Wonderful juice isn't actually that wonderful and declared claims that the pomegranate juice's antioxidants (and the company's advertising) "prevent serious diseases and other medical conditions" were fraudulent.

All of that got me thinking: what other food is masquerading around as "healthy" but actually isn't? Plus, I found out one VERY surprising "bad" food that isn't actually as unhealthy as we've previously heard.
