We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I see you link to one of the rightist obsessions with things not like itself, the anti-Whopper detox. Right above this is the other rightist obsession, the anti-bacon diet known to normal people as veganism.
Which leads to an obvious question? Do you actually read this garbage before assuming it's even remotely credible? Because I just read those two and they're not. They're not even good opinion.
It's amazing the lengths people will go to to debunk the "myths" that actually debunk themselves instead...
I like baloney and cheese sandwiches. But I don't get them very much because I am trying to stay away from bread.

Of course they're credible, and I for one appreciate being exposed to this material (if I can use those words in this age). We need something to read while we're eating our triple-bacon cheeseburgers, washed down with ale, with pie a la mode for dessert.
I'd argue with a few of these "myths", mainly the "HFCS is no worse than sugar" one. Maybe not nutritionally, but economically speaking, HFCS is a horror show. We put trade restrictions on sugar from impoverished countries where sugar is one of their few export goods in order to jack up the price of sugar here to the point where American corn farmers can profit from the manufacture of corn sweetener (and don't get me started on the insane ethanol mandate) and to enrich the Fanjul family in Florida. Stealing from the poor to give to the rich.
And as far as eating breakfast and not eating before bedtime, it works as long as you're not also eating a big lunch, a big dinner and plenty of between-meal snacks. Force yourself to eat a small dinner and nothing afterward and you'll be hungry for breakfast in the morning but you're going to consume fewer calories throughout the day. There's nothing magical about the timing of your eating, but tricking yourself into eating less is good.
