“Don’t eat what you can’t pronounce… Synthetic chemicals are more dangerous than natural chemicals… Chemicals in food are killing us… There is no safe level of pesticides…”
It’s no wonder we are scared of food with myths like these flying around our plates. Today’s Food Bullying podcast guest not only knows and loves chemicals, she can help you understand why it’s O.K. that your food is filled with them.
Erin, widely known as Food Science Babe, is a chemical engineer and a food scientist. She’s also a mom of a special needs toddler , and was once an organic consumer who believed in the Dirty Dozen list, but now buys conventional food with as few labels claims as possible. Erin found the science didn’t support the marketing claims and now works daily to overcome fear in the science of food. As such, she faces the bullies every day.
