The Food Babe Comes Under Fire
Here’s something to chew on. Vani Hari, aka the Food Babe, came under a blistering attack from Gawker, which accused the health activist of misleading consumers and spreading pseudoscience. Hari has led campaigns against companies like Subway and Starbucks that have resulted in major product changes. She pushed back on Tuesday, accusing Gawker of using a pesticide industry advocate with vested corporate interests to write the piece. Hari refused to retract any of her claims and said she’ll keep going after companies she believes use dangerous chemicals in their foods.
