How seriously do you take the food and health information found in the Daily Mail?
As seriously as I take their politics.
I can't really advise in this, it's not the type of paper I choose to read. Judging by the people I see reading it I would expect good coverage of old ladies' problems.
Is there any particular article that you are anxious about? It may be better to buy a different paper. The Telegraph may be more your style.

The only time I see the Mail is if someone links to it from here to make a point. My conclusion is usually that they know their readership well.
I gave up reading the DM a long time ago. I'd become a proper Cassandra and feared for the planet and my family's health and wellbeing. It occurred to me, one day, that all my anxieties were being fuelled by the paper.
People still read newspapers? Why?
Dunno. I understand this is popular too:
