Years ago, we published a report, Holy Cows, on the willingness of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) to manipulate religious teachings to peddle its radical animal liberation agenda. Nothing has changed. Just this week, Sarah Withrow King—the director of PETA’s self-serving religious affiliate, Jesus People for Animals—penned an opinion piece that managed … Continue reading
The food police are back on the prowl thanks to a recent study from the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health (yes, that Bloomberg). The study sought to reduce consumption of juice and soda by posting signs in … Continue reading
It’s no secret that Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) tends to lean to the political left—a point we’ve long made at our project CrewExposed.com. After all, the nonprofit group has been run by former top Democratic aide to the House Judiciary Committee Melanie Sloan and … Continue reading
Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps, a Big Green California company, is an outspoken advocate of the scientifically suspect “GMO labeling” movement. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Dr. Bronner’s should spend more time worrying about their own labels. For starters, … Continue reading

According to Mike Adams (a.k.a. the “Health Ranger”) biotechnology is mass genocide and its advocates are Nazis. No joke. The conspiracy theory — explained in a ridiculous and dangerous rant of a blog post at “NaturalNews.com” — is depraved enough to dismiss at … Continue reading
We’ve noticed a rising tide of online activism against safe food ingredients, especially genetically improved foods (GIFs). You might recall the “Food Babe”—who peddles a, um, creative combination of pseudoscience and “food bimbo” sex appeal—to warn against the evils of microwaves and very seriously cautions that water feels sad when you … Continue reading
While anti-food activists continue to push unscientific and self-serving claims indicting specific foods as the biggest culprit for obesity, we’ve continually sought to highlight the other, often forgotten side of the equation: physical activity and exercise. But since exercise involves … Continue reading
The food police and busybodies are pushing a narrative that certain chosen foods are addictive, but no matter how often you conflate the words “addiction” with “desire” or “craving,” you won’t succeed in making them synonyms. But the cockamamie idea … Continue reading
