Feeding You Lies
This follow-up to New York Times bestseller The Food Babe Way exposes the lies we’ve been told about our food–and takes readers on a journey to find healthy options.
In this book, food activist Vani Hari, “The Food Babe,” exposes the flagrant 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 on which we make our food choices.
