Also just because it has been recorded as happening, it does not mean every study has to be branded as such.
No...but it does provide an incentive to be skeptical about any "science".

Can you explain PETA? Are they agro company that sell seed or vegetables? Or how do they make money? I can't believe you put them in same basket as tobacco company, must be you love meat and need to ignore all signals to keep on loving it.
Dr Du said: "Our data clearly shows that eating fresh fruit can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, including ischaemic heart disease and stroke (particularly haemorrhagic stroke). And not only that, the more fruit you eat the more your CVD risk goes down. It does suggest that eating more fruit is beneficial compared to less or no fruit."
The researchers also found that people who consumed fruit more often had significantly lower blood pressure (BP). Eating fruit daily was associated with 3.4/4.1 mmHg lower systolic/diastolic BP compared to those who never ate fruit. Dr Du said: "Our data shows that eating fresh fruit was associated with lower baseline BP. We also found that the beneficial effect of fruit on the risk of CVD was independent of its impact on baseline BP."
