I'm not sure what decade the low fat and high carbohydrate diet was indcoctrinated into western society possibly the 80s or 90s.  This low fat diet advice must have been sanctioned by governments as physicians and all  were recommending .However huge studies have now shown that low fat diet in the long term is dangerous to health.  Fats are essential to our health and lack of fat in the diet has been proven in the long term  to cause heart disease,gives higher risk of certain cancers and affects our neurological system etc.
BMI as an indicator of health is now considered by many scholars to be inaccurate.  They also state that people with a higher BMI outside of the healthy range of 18 -25 can also be healthy.Many argue that our health can only be determined by what are blood test results show.BMI is inaccurate because it doesn't take into account muscle mass,bone density and body shape.So millions of people are being duped into believing they are unhealthy because their BMI is slightly high.  BMI in the U.S is used as a tool to calculate health insurance policies.
High cholesterol,millions are on statins to reduce their cholesterol levels and yet there are sub types of cholesterol and we are told certain types are bad for us?
Just how much money has been made and is being made in the low fat industry from books, food production and products.
How much money are big pharmaceutical companies making from these cholesterol busting drugs. will surveys find in the future elevated cholesterol levels aren't harmful to health?
Note that if a person is excessively overweight that is unhealthy and is proven and I'm not disagreeing with that.
Did our governments not know that fat in our diet is essential for health?  Also studies have shown that if people in their 70 s 80s and 90s have extra padding on them this fat can help them to live a longer life.  The low fat industry have removed fat from products and loaded them with sugars.  Excess sugar in the diet is damaging.
Has it all been , is it all a lie, a deception or bad advice I'm not sure, but millions have been affected.

It is worth noting that foods labelled as low fat are often high in sugar to make the product palatable.
Low fat foods without higher sugar levels taste disgusting.

Often foods labelled as reduced or low fat have almost the same calories as regular food.

Sion Jenkins was later cleared of the murder of his foster (not adopted) daughter. I did not believe (and still don't) that there was enough evidence to convict him in the first place.

OK @ hogwash

Father Christmas probably does meet the criteria for this thread, but I guess I would class it as a benign hoax - along with "you'll find gold at the end of a rainbow" - so I doubt if he'll make the top ten hoaxes if we run a poll on this later.

Crop circles - yes, fascinating subject but I do find the patterns these crop circlers make at the dead of night in the English summer of great beauty:



Loch Ness Monster - element of doubt, I feel, here - maybe not any more, but in the past? 

But here's a really bad hoaxer, fake 'Christian' televangelist Morris Cerullo, pretend faith-healer, quite rightly debunked here on Wikipedia:


Following Cerullo's Mission to London in 1992, a documentary on the BBC, Newsround, reported that a lady called Audrey Reynolds stopped taking medication for epilepsy (although she was never instructed or advised to do so by the ministry)[citation needed] after she believed herself to have been healed during Cerullo's rally. She subsequently died following a seizure in her bath. The story was also reported in a Christian newspaper.[11][12] Another report from this crusade claimed that Cerullo pronounced a four-year-old cancer sufferer to be free from the disease, yet she died from it just two months later.[13][14]

Amityville Horror

In 1974, six members of an Amityville, New York, family were killed by their youngest son, Butch DeFeo. The following year George and Kathy Lutz and their three children moved into the home, and soon, they claimed, they were supernaturally attacked by a demonic ghost or spirit. They collaborated with novelist Jay Anson, who embellished their tale, and the story was soon adapted into a screenplay for the hit film "The Amityville Horror." Investigators, skeptical of their claims, were proven correct years later when DeFeo's lawyer admitted that he and the Lutzes made up the whole thing, and all profited handsomely from the hoax.

Lying Margaret Mead, fake sociologist who deceived a generation

--------------------------------

Anthropology Afoul of the Facts
Margaret Mead's Flights of Fancy in Samoa
Benjamin Wiker

National Catholic Register

May 19, 2002

QUOTE

In 1928, Margaret Mead published Coming of Age in Samoa. An immediate success, this slender volume established Mead as the most famous and most influential anthropologist of the 20th century. For nearly half a century, whether writing scholarly articles from her desk at the American Museum of Natural History in New York or pontificating as contributing editor of the popular magazine Redbook, Mead helped to refashion attitudes on nearly every social issue. In 1979, a year after her death, Mead was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Few women have been more adored, more honored and more influential than she.

If Mead's influence were for the good, then she would deserve the profuse praise she received. The truth about Mead, however, points elsewhere. Coming of Age in Samoa, perhaps more than any other work, helped to convince the intelligentsia of the West that the only natural expression of sexuality was casual sexuality.

Even more distressing, Mead's work in Samoa, which allegedly established the naturalness of casual sex, was a work of fraud and fiction, merely a projection of Mead's own sexual beliefs...

Nebraska Man

Post by Tony Bennett on 14.02.16 14:34

Wikipedia says this wasn't a hoax, just a 'mistake'.

But on the wholly inadequate basis of one tooth, which turned out to be the tooth of a pig, the world was deceived into thinking this was proof of another imaginary 'ape-man':

--------------


Nebraska Man was a name applied to Hesperopithecus haroldcookii, a putative species of ape. Hesperopithecus meant "ape of the western world," and it was heralded as the first higher primate of North America. Haroldcookii was given as the species name in reference to the original discoverer of the tooth, Harold Cook. It was originally described by Henry Fairfield Osborn in 1922, on the basis of a tooth that rancher and geologist Harold Cook found in Nebraska in 1917. The discovery was made around ten years after the finding of Piltdown Man, another possible human ancestor that turned out to be a hoax. Although Nebraska man was not a deliberate hoax, the original classification proved to be a mistake.
