There's nothing wrong with promoting a healthy lifestyle, or encouraging people to eat more veggies, less sugar, less meat and less trans-fats. But when you start terrifying people with lies, you're officially DONE.
It really doesn't help that everything she says/does all leads to her personal website, where you can purchase all of her merchandise.
Website that spreads fear, uncertainty and doubt about 'dangerous chemicals' in food and medicine. None of the information is supported by science. Author has a degree in computer science, with no background in or understanding of food science, chemistry or medicine. Moreover, this kind of fearmongering focuses attention on chemicals with scary-sounding names, alternate uses or origins while distracting from legitimate public health issues such as the use of antibiotics in poultry feed.
Business model seems to revolve around expensive supplements, sold through affiliate links. I would definitely be cautious of advice on which product to buy, when the person providing the advice receives money from selling the products they promote. Author's organic eating guide, in particular, recommends products that have marketing partnerships with the site.
Site also promotes nonsense ideas of 'vaccine risk', going so far as to call the flu vaccine a 'genocide tool' (seriously). That kind of nonsense has caused the breakdown of herd immunity in some populations, facilitating epidemics of easily preventable diseases. As such, Foodbabe is partially responsible for a great deal of unnecessary suffering, on the part of children who are too young to make their own health decisions.
Vani Hari, the "Food Babe", consistently makes unscientific claims about food and agriculture in order to profit. For example, she has claimed that certain food additives are not safe for human consumption, in spite of scientific evidence that they are, yet those very same chemicals are often found in the products she pushes for kickbacks on her website. She is financially motivated to stir up fear about food and agriculture in order to encourage people to purchase what she recommends.
I was banned for politely pointing out that her methods and research are entirely fallacious. Some of her claims relate to serious medical conditions including cancer and could result in death.
Either way, she's promoting her own agenda while ignoring the needs of others.
This site is designed to look like an "activist" site, yet it's main objective is to sell product through affiliate links and costly meal plans.
Much of the information contained in the site is not based in fact or research and at times constitutes dangerous advice and encourages orthorexia.
Seems legit, but those arent to give for your children, soo, Some of those stuff shown might not be true, some stuff, shown may be true, sometimes its a mix.
Foodbabe.com might give information that is not true(kind of like the evolution theory), as a results, its more of an entertaining site.
Finally! Food babe admitted that she was wrong:
Good information well formulated and easy to verify. The derogatory comments are from sources that wish to discredit Foodbabe. The FDA does not have our best interests in mind, Foodbabe gives us the information we need to make better educated decisions about what we actually put into our bodies. Not so many years ago we did not have 'Organic Food', we just had 'Food'. I would like to see all GMO, pesticide, and non organic fertilizer foods removed from the marketplace.
Promotes organic, non-GMO food. She has gotten major companies to change their ingredients by removing antibiotics and dangerous chemicals. Much of the world bans GMOs.
Studies show GMOs are detrimental to your health. Anyone who supports GMOs and is anti-Food Babe probably has ties to Monsanto and big food companies.
Psudo science from a person who has never studied the human body. Entire website is dedicated to selling a book based on manipulated facts and it is dangerous to assume her "knowledge" can ever be placed above an actual medical professional. Seek help from a licensed dietitian, or medical professional. Not FB.
In Recipe Rendezvous, I'll share what Food Babes cook up in the kitchen as well as weekly recipes.
