About the Author

Vani Hari is a revolutionary food activist, a New York Times best-selling author, and was named one of the "Most Influential People On The Internet" by Time Magazine. Hari started FoodBabe.com 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 of her writing and investigative work can be seen in the way food companies react to her uncanny ability to find and expose the truth.

Hari has influenced how major food giants like Kraft, General Mills, Subway, Chipotle, Chick-fil-A, and Starbucks create their products, steering them toward more healthful policies. Hari's activism has brought in worldwide attention as she has been profiled in The New York Times, The Atlantic, Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and more. Hari has appeared on Good Morning America, CBS News, NBC News, Fox News, The Dr. Oz Show, The Doctors, and CNN. She lives in North Carolina and also is the founder of Truvani, a start-up offering real food without added chemicals, products without toxins and labels without lies.

This is a great book. It shows you how the food industry hires front groups, scientists, trade, etc. to spread lies about Vani Hari and the FACTS that are revealed in this important book. How the heck does the FDA take a food manufacturer's word for it that a chemical they put in a food item is GRAS (generally recognized as safe)? Talk about the wolf guarding the sheep pen...She explains in detail what are the many harmful ingredients in our food that cause diseases, etc. Why is the US allowing Americans to eat toxin ridden foods while providing the same product to Europe with healthy ingredients? We have become the cash cows for the medical and pharmaceutical industries to make money over the illnesses these toxic foods cause. It's an absolute disgrace -- these entities have blood on their hands and they know they are liars all so they can have filthy lucre. Vani Hari is one of the few truth warriors in our Nation who should be applauded for her tireless efforts not harassed by paid shills. If you read this book you must also read her Food Babe Way book as it is a complement to this book. You won't feel sorry for learning the truth, you'll only regret you didn't know this stuff earlier on in life. And for all those people who write this is pseudo-science maybe you should check out the Endnotes section which documents and backs up SCIENTIFICALLY everything she says.
