    "Food Babe is Full of ****"



    Filed under: Things We Already Knew, Things Millions Didn't

    What do you get when you add a self-righteous twit, an internet connection, the backing of shills like Dr. Oz, and millions of scientifically illiterate soccer moms?

    You get the phenomenon that is known as "Food Babe".

    "Food Babe", also known as Vani Hari, is responsible for some of the most idiotic nonsense spouted on the subject of diet and health. For example, she believes that microwaves are evil, homeopathy is good, and that "if you can't pronounce it, you shouldn't eat it". Obviously she's not getting enough (2R,3S,4S,5R,6R)-2-(hydroxymethyl)-6-[(2R,3S,4R,5R,6S)-4,5,6-trihydroxy-2-(hydroxymethyl)oxan-3-yl]oxy-oxane-3,4,5-triol - aka "starch" - in her diet, which explains why she is full of ****.

    It's an old truth that you can make a lot of money by scaring people, as long as you sell them the thing that will make them feel safe. Hari employs this tactic to scare people into buying her books, which are filled with all sorts of nonsense about "Toxins" and "GMOs".


    The scientific community has had enough of her bullshit, and is fighting back. In a scathing piece on, of all websites, Gawker, analytical chemist, toxicologist, and forensic scientist Yvette d'Entremont, curb stomps Hari's misinformation.

    Hari’s campaign last year against the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte drove me to launch my site (don’t **** with a Bostonian’s Pumpkin-Spice Anything). She alleged that the PSL has a “toxic” dose of sugar and two (TWO!!) doses of caramel color level IV in carcinogen class 2b.

    The word “toxic” has a meaning, and that is “having the effect of a poison.” Anything can be poisonous depending on the dose. Enough water can even be poisonous in the right quantity (and can cause a condition called hyponatremia).

    But then, the Food Babe has gone on record to say, “ There is just no acceptable level of any chemical to ingest, ever.” I wonder if anybody’s warned her about good old dihydrogen monoxide?

    (AKA water.)

    As if it weren't bad enough that she's got millions of idiots convinced she's spouting things on the level of someone with a master's degree in chemistry, Food Babe is notorious for encouraging her "army" to zerg rush websites and social media pages, to silence criticism, and to harass companies into removing completely harmless preservatives from their products, for no genuine reason other than to assuage these idiots' collective senses of righteousness and unfounded outrage.

    ED: Hari is definitely a candidate for our Douchebag of the Month feature, and may grace its unhallowed halls at some point in the near future; we need less "Activism and more "Factivism".

    She kinda looks like Shannon Watts. Maybe they are one in the same person, fighting the gluten menace and the ammosexual menace, as two different people.

    The equivalent of bullshido in the nutrition world.

    Or would it be the Bohdi Sanders of the nutrition world ?

    Not self published, at least...Little Brown did the first one at least.

    I am losing weight by eating bacon, pork chops, venison (low fat naturally) cheese, veggies and not a lot of carbs. I should die soon according to conventional wisdom, LOL !

    ***edit***
    I forgot to add, I also cure/smoke my own hams. Use the fattest fucking pork shoulders I can find, too. Which is often difficult, because a lot of the pork sold today (in normal grocery stores) is "lean pork". Anyway, we will be buying half a pig later in the year from a local farmer, so lard will be back on the menu.

    Recent studies have shown that the American food pyramid has it all wrong and that it is not fat that is the enemy. It is carbs and trans fat, specifically (I'm sure as many of you know) refined sugars, white breads, and the likes. Many of the carbs lacked fiber and were stripped of their original nutrition value. Back in the '70's and early 80's when heart disease started to become a big problem the staple was lots of red meat, butter and, refined fast acting carbs,
    These types of carbs cause inflammation in the veins and arteries, causing the natural fats to get stuck in our circulatory system, clogging it all up. So fat and red meat was deemed the enemy. It has been shown that eating a diet high in fat and protein and with the carbs coming from RAW vegetables and fruits show no significant risk in coronary disease.
    I had a botany class a couple of years ago and the molecular section went into great detail about how the food pyramid was all wrong.
    In short, the enemies are fast acting carbs (white bread lovers, yes even fortified white bread, not the same) and trans fats.
    **** you trans fats.

    More like Hatsumi. she's making bank off morons from her made up bullshit.

    She got appendicitis, and then did some "research," which told her appendicitis is caused by food additives. Because reasons. She changed her diet, and since then, never got appendicitis again. You can't explain that.

    She's an idiot.

    I like the unflattering photo you went with for the article head. These would've also been good:

    Don't worry.

    I'll protect you.

    She should change her name to The Food Girl. She's not exactly what I'd call a babe. I mean, she's not ugly or anything but I don't think she qualifies as a babe.

    This is my expert opinion which is just as sound and logical as the opinions of The Food Girl...right? Right??

    Speak for yourself.

    I'd knock the bottom out of that. Two times!

    No rubbers of course. Because "chemicals".

    She'd probably accept the kind made out of sheep intestines.



    Let's just make sure we post as many demeaning, sexually explicit, and violent things about her as we can. That way her henchwomen can post screencaps of us for her other followers to be appalled at.

    Just so we're clear, are we talking about her boasting about the health of a nonexistent organ, or did she pass on all the CHEMICALS involved in an appendectomy and Jesus got to her before Darwin did?
