KFC Double Down Healthier Than a Single Egg Yolk?

Turns out the researchers weren’t being paid by KFC. They were just being paid by Pfizer to write an opinion supporting the infamous, debunked, half-century old Ancel Keys study (You’ll notice the giant “CONFLICT OF INTEREST” paragraph if you click through to the actual “study“). Then the AOL blogger pulled the KFC headline out of thin air. Boo, AOL. Boo. At least the Australians are getting it right.
