The consensus in the nutrition research boils down to two things:

1. Don't eat too much.

2. Eat mostly plants.

If you want to add a #3, it would be "exercise."

Other than those points, nutrition research says more about the scientists, the design of the studies, and the complexity of the human body than it does about what you should eat (and should generally be ignored).

Not from TV, although PBS does offer some international news programs which focus on U.S. events from a very different perspective. If anything, Trump should be thanking the main news networks (both over the air and cable). They gave him thousands of hours of free coverage of his rallies, events, speeches, and even hours spent "waiting" for Trump to "do something." No other candidate even came close in free coverage.

The electoral college means the candidates don't campaign at all in the states where the outcome is a forgone conclusion. My state, for example, had hardly any visits or interest at all from either candidate because it was going to vote Republican. The only time we got any attention at all was brief stops to collect donation checks, but no real campaigning or advertising. If the popular vote mattered, what happened in full-on red and blue states would matter because your vote could still count toward your candidate's chance of winning (whereas my vote had no real impact whatsoever in a red state).

Who is going to pay the $2 million for your heart transplant (because, apparently, you don't have one)?
Or if you get hit by a bus and can't work any more?
Or if you get cancer and need chemo and need the same kind of immuno therapy?
That's how it works in society. I pay for you. You pay for me.
