Thanks Andy, now I have to worry about truth and honesty on the internet?

I'm already worrying as fast as I can!

You should be worrying about that first. You can trust me. I'm not sure about anyone else...

Women learn (or should learn) that as soon as they leave the nest!

Read your labels, trust them. I wonder how many subscriptions she sold with that blog. "Food Babe" is not an expert in anything but blogging.

Before I say anything, a lot of the information that The Babe has presented is true.

Is it all? That would take hours/days to research. But I found it a bit strange that, on her web site and under Investigations these were all Babe quoting Babe. I do wish she had put the actual citations of valid research there to back up her 'investigations'---- it would have given an aura of authenticity to her site.

She's an entrepreneur. And she's very good (at her) PR work. And she also gives discounts for items that 'she's approved' by entering her name at time of purchase. Hmmmm.
I'm also pretty sure that each time someone clicks on a product 'just to see' she will get a few pennies through AdClick. Lemme see---- I think I paid her at least 50 cents today by clicking on various items. LOL

Entrepreneurs know how to play the Internet and the Easily Swayed. There are web sites out there that instruct people how to do that.

They're also very good at getting pictured next to 'celebrities' or such. I've seen that happen (different venue) a lot: They just rush up to stand next to the famous one who wouldn't be so rude as to push them away.

I hope that Rocket Dawg isn't offended by my critique of the site he posted. As I say, a lot of that information is true and I thank him for that. I mean absolutely no disrespect to him or his intentions.
