Hidden Headlines

Headlines don’t always tell the whole story. This headline missed the more important issue.

The headline read: “Arsenic found in many American red wines, but health risks depend on total diet,” Science Daily Nutrition, September 29, 2015

Within the article there is this statement: “It [analysis] found some evidence that higher levels of arsenic in Washington red wines could be a result of pesticide residue.”

To really inform readers, this would be a better headline:

 “Pesticides-sprayed grapes exposing red wine drinkers to arsenic”
