Vocab Bite: Nutraganda

superman-got-milk-ad-commercial1nu·tra·gan·da [noo-truh-gan-duh]

- noun

  1. Information and ideas relating to nutrition deliberately spread to help or harm a group or institution
  2. Inflammatory or overly hyped information about one food that passes as news but is really a paid advertisement

Example: I’m getting really tired of the nutraganda in some health magazines.  This month, they had an article about beer being a good post-workout beverage, and sure enough, a few pages later, there was a beer advertisement.
