The Food Babe Decoded

Vani Hari, who goes by the alias “The Food Babe” has become a real social phenomenon. She blogs, appears on TV and has just come out with a book that quickly made it to the New York Times best seller list. She has lots of followers and lots of critics, including myself.

"There is just no acceptable level of any chemical to ingest, ever," she says.
