Rethinking fat: The case for adding some into your diet
NPR
Remember the fat-free boom that swept the country in the 1990s? Yes, we know from the Salt readers who took our informal survey that a lot of you tried to follow it. And gave up. "I definitely remember eating fat-free cookies, fat–free pudding, fat-free cheese, which was awful," Elizabeth Stafford, an attorney from North Carolina, told us in the survey. Back then, she avoided all kinds of foods with fat: cheese, eggs, meat, even nuts and avocados.

Solving the gluten-free debate
The Huffington Post
Remember a decade ago when low-carb reached its zenith? Suddenly, manufacturers created donuts, cookies and other junk food repurposed as lower in carbohydrates and therefore "healthy." Except that it wasn't. "Going gluten free" has reached that same laughingstock status these days. You can bastardize any diet plan, and imagining you'll suddenly lose fat and feel better eating gluten-free processed foods will only set you up for serious disappointment.

4 myths about vitamin supplements
The Conversation
People take vitamin supplements for all kinds of reasons, from maintaining general health to preventing cancer. But there's no convincing evidence that vitamin supplementation benefits people who don't actually have a vitamin deficiency.

Why are vitamins named using the alphabet?
Gizmodo
Easily identifiable by simple terms, the vitamins we recognize today were only recently isolated, identified and named. Scientists studying why animals failed to thrive (deficiency diseases) were the first to discover vitamins. One of these early researchers, Cornelius Adrianus Pekelharing, opined in 1905 that milk had "some unrecognized substance ... in very small quantities that was necessary for normal growth and maintenance."
