How do we separate "nutrition" from "woo-trition?"  This show is about the science (and pseudoscience) of food.  

We also spend time on nutrition celebrity "The Food Babe," Vani Hari, a best-selling author and activist named by Time Magazine as one of the 30 most influential people on the internet, despite the fact that she has no degree or expertise in the field of health and nutrition.

Joining our discussion are actual health and science educators:

  • Yvette d'Entremont (also known as SciBabe), with a B.S. in chemistry and an MSc in forensic science.  Yvette is a public critic of Vani Hari and a science educator.  http://www.scibabe.com
  • Melissa Dobbins MS, CDE, RDN (Registered Dietitian Nutritionist).  www.SoundBitesRD.com
  • Leah McGrath RDN  @LeahMcGrathRD
  • Dr. Steven Novella, clinical neurologist and assistant professor at Yale University School of Medicine.  Dr. Novella is a proponent of scientific skepticism and a vocal critic of pseudoscientific health claims and claimants. http://theness.com/neurologicablog
