Nutella has recently become a big topic in health media, with numerous stories either claiming or refuting that the food product causes cancer. As is always the case in health-related media trends, it can be hard to separate what is good and useful information from what may be just attempts to lure in web traffic or promote an agenda. Furthermore, other relevant questions are often ignored in favor of repeating the same points already being covered. Because of this, it can be difficult for companies or consumers to make an informed decision regarding the issue.
