SciBabe Explains How the Food Babe is Full of It
We’re always happy to see other scientists take on Vani Hari, the “Food Babe,” and her lack of any factual basis for her ridiculous advice. This week, Yvette d’Entremont—analytical chemist and SciBabe blogger—penned a piece for Gawker explaining:
Reading Hari’s site, it’s rare to come across a single scientific fact. Between her egregious abuse of the word ‘toxin’ anytime there’s a chemical she can’t pronounce and asserting that everyone who disagrees with her is a paid shill, it’s hard to pinpoint her biggest sin….Maybe Hari’s crusades would be OK if she had the facts to back them up. But she doesn’t, and worse, when she’s wrong, she tries to make her errors disappear.
