"The Food Babe" Says They're Feeding You Lies (How to Unravel the Food Industry's Playbook and Recl

Listen to the full episode here

In her new book "Feeding You Lies: How to Unravel the Food Industry's Playbook and Reclaim Your Health", my guest on today's podcast, Vani Hari (AKA "The Food Babe") exposes the lies we've been told about our food--and takes readers on a journey to find healthy options. There's so much confusion about what to eat. Are you jumping from diet to diet and nothing seems to work? Are you sick of seeing contradictory health advice from experts? Just like the tobacco industry lied to us about the dangers of cigarettes, the same untruths, cover-ups, and deceptive practices are occurring in the food industry. Vani blows the lid off the lies we've been fed about the food we eat--lies about its nutrient value, effects on our health, label information, and even the very science we base our food choices on. In the book, she discusses: -How nutrition research is manipulated by food company funded experts... - How to spot fake news generated by Big Food... -The tricks food companies use to make their food addictive... -Why labels like "all natural" and "non-GMO" aren't what they seem and how to identify the healthiest food... -Food marketing hoaxes that persuade us into buying junk food disguised as health food... Vani Hari started FoodBabe.com in April 2011 to spread information about what is really in the American food supply. She teaches people how to make the right purchasing decisions at the grocery store, how to live an organic lifestyle, and how to travel healthfully around the world. The success in her writing and investigative work can be seen in the way food companies react to her uncanny ability to find and expose the truth. Impassioned by knowing how food affects health, Vani loves sharing her message on the blogosphere to 3 million unique readers across the globe. Vani convinced the biggest fast food chain in the world, Subway, to remove a controversial ingredient after receiving 50,000 signatures in 24 hours on her petition to the chain. After receiving tremendous attention on her posts about Chick-Fil-A, she was invited by the company's leadership to meet at its headquarters to consult on specific improvements to ingredients used by the national chain, which they later implemented. 7 months after Vani petitioned Kraft to remove harmful petroleum-based artificial food dyes from Mac & Cheese, Kraft responded by removing the dye from all products aimed at children. Other major food companies that have responded to her writings include Panera Bread, Whole Foods, Lean Cuisine, McDonalds, General Mills, Taco Bell, Starbucks, Coca-Cola, Chipotle, Yoforia, and Moe's South West Grill. Vani's activism brought national attention at the Democratic National Convention when she used her status as an elected delegate to protest in front of the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture on the issue of GMO labeling. Vani has been profiled in the New York Times, USA Today, Washington Times, Chicago Tribune, appeared on The Dr. Oz Show, Good Morning America, The Doctors Show, NBC News, Fox News and is a regular cooking contributor on NBC's Charlotte Today and food expert on CNN. During our discussion, you'll discover: -Inorganic phosphates (Pi), and their effects on physical performance...8:20 Here are the two studies Ben mentions: Phosphate Additives in Food—a Health Risk High-Phosphate Diet Induces Exercise Intolerance and Impairs Fatty Acid Metabolism in Mice Pi is used by the food industry to give processed foods a certain texture, add shelf life, etc. Adults with high Pi levels have a higher mortality rate: affects kidneys and other organs Study at Univ. of Texas: Pi lowered performance, Changed gene expression Higher level of Pi, the lower the physical activity Sodium phosphate is the most common ingredient used as a preservative -Insights into Vani's investigations into why foods are manufactured so differently in Europe vs. the U.S....12:15 Vani became aware of this when she noticed the ingredients in Kraft mac and cheese was very different in Europe than in the U.S. Started a petition to get Kraft to remove artificial food dyes in the U.S. U.K. requires warning label: "may cause adverse effects on activity and attention in children" Kraft decided to use natural ingredients rather than put on the warning label Chose to not do the same in the U.S. because the FDA doesn't require a warning label; it's simply cheaper. Natural ingredients look and taste the same as yellow #5 and #6 Every major American company does this Pepsi serves American version of its products with artificial preservatives; and one with plain sugar, beta kerotene, etc. in Europe It comes down to money: synthetic ingredients are cheaper French fries are vastly different in U.K. from the U.S. These chemicals go into many things, not just food The dangers of artificial flavors: FDA was recently sued by several non-profits because 7 ingredients were allowed to be used, that are link
