Regarding the dog food article, I agree that it is truly difficult as a "parent" of a dog to judge just how healthy a brand of dog food is. It's hard to look at the ingredients and decided if it is acceptable. Human food isn't always the best answer either, so I can't judge dog food based on human food requirements.
