Don't forget to join us October 6 and 7 for the 2014 Lorne Trottier Public Science Symposium "ARE WE ALONE?"
I spent quite some time talking with the reporter who wrote this story about the Food Babe. She did quote me correctly but as far as having lots of fans and "some" critics goes...well those "some" consist of members of the scientific community who know a lot more about food science than the "fans."
My guest next Sunday on my radio show is Dr. David Gorski, surgical oncologist and champion of science-based medicine. The topic? What else? Quack cancer remedies. But we will also discuss legitimate treatments. You can catch the action at 3 PM Eastern time on CJAD 800 in Montreal or on the web. Just go to the CJAD website and click on" listen live."
