TODAY'S VIDEO:

Recently a study came out that triggered a whole range of media articles declaring that veganism is unhealthy and that plant-based alternatives cause heart failure. However, there was a problem. This reporting completely misrepresented the study and came to conclusions that were not shown by the study whatsoever.

In particular, one article published by #TheTelegraph caught my attention. #UltraProcessedFoods
