Calling BS on "Health Report" from CNN

So, this is an actual headline today:

Meat-eaters may have a higher risk of death, but plants are the answer

 Yeah.  I hate to break it to you but no matter what you eat, do think, believe, feel, try, don't try, etc etc etc, your risk of death remains 100%.   You are going to die.  We are all going to die.  Everything dies.

How do "they" get away with such headlines?  I know the authors of the study meant a lower risk of death in a specific timeframe but that info does not appear in the title or the article presented here.  Why not?  Who writes this stuff?  Who is Jaqueline Howard?
Of course it's not just J. Howard.  It's a common theme in our nation's health news reporting.  What will increase or decrease your risk of death.

NOTHING.  The risk of death is always 100%.  Your risk of death in the next 10 minutes, 1 day, 1 year may be something other than 100%, no doubt lower, but overall, it is 100%.  You are going to die.

Perhaps be a decent human while you are alive.
