I am going to be attacked for writing my next book: Feeding You Lies

I was naive when I started blogging on Food Babe back in 2011.

I thought everyone would be happy about what I wrote because I was helping people. 

I had no idea that my investigations into the food industry would produce such a firestorm. 

I thought if I just told the truth on my blog, everything would get better.

I thought the food industry would change because people would demand it once they learned the truth.

After we succeeded in changing dozens of food company ingredients and food practices for the better, we (the Food Babe Army) became a TARGET. Droves of critics were unleashed to take me down. They were organized by people with deep pockets, with a mission to protect the billion-dollar processed food and chemical industry.

Now that I look back, I see how ignorant I was to think that nothing would happen to me. 

This group of critics weaseled their way into major newspapers all over the place, and said horrible things about me (that I was crackpot and a bimbo, and worse). This was done to damage my credibility and to make me look like an uneducated crazy person.

And at the time, reporters believed that these critics of mine were independent experts – without financial ties to the food industry – and so they allowed them to be the antagonist in these stories about me as an activist.

At first, I couldn’t pin down exactly what was going on. I had my suspicions, of course, but I couldn’t really prove that these people were getting money from the industry.

And then slowly, but surely, the truth started to reveal itself.

I submitted freedom of information act (FOIA) requests and received hundreds of internal emails. I met with someone who admitted he had edited my Wikipedia page, because he was paid by a firm to discredit my work. I talked to other experts and went behind the scenes to really figure out more about what was going on.

My eyes were opened to a whole world of corruption…

What I have now found, is compelling evidence showing how these critics were connected to and were taking money from the food and chemical industries. I also uncovered how the industry will stop at nothing to keep their unhealthy products on the market, even if it means lying repeatedly to the public. 

And, this series of events led me to realize that… whoa, there are SO MANY LIES that the food industry has told us over the years. They manipulate us to buy their products and they use dirty tactics just like what the tobacco industry has done. I had an epiphany. I knew I had to tell people all about this.

I knew I had to get this out to the public and my next book was born… 

This book – which I call FEEDING YOU LIES – is being printed this week and getting ready to hit bookstores in just a few months. It is not something that has ever been written before. It’s told from my perspective and shares personal stories on how I figured out the lies that needed to be exposed.

When I decided to write this book, I was pregnant and pitched it to publishers, and by the time I got a publisher and was ready to write it, my baby was born. I spent the last two years becoming a mom, trying to figure out how to raise my daughter and continue being an activist. And, now that she is almost 2, I am back.

I’m ready to get back in the fight again. Now is the right time for this book to come out.

Certain individuals and companies do NOT want their lies to be published and that’s why I know this book is going to really open me up to attacks.

And to be honest, this will not be easy for me. That’s why I really need your support. 

The best way you can support my new book is by pre-ordering a copy. The book will be shipped to you on its release date on February 19, 2019, so you will get to be one of the very first people to read it!

The reason why pre-ordering the book is so helpful is that this sends a signal to bookstores everywhere that they should carry FEEDING YOU LIES when it comes out in February. We need to get this book into the hands of more people, as quickly as possible, when it hits stores.

I really want every single one of you to pre-order this book and to tell your local bookstores to carry it. That is the only way we are going to get it out there…

The media likely won’t be reporting about it. Do you think that the morning shows are going to have me on their network while their sponsors are Kellogg’s and General Mills?

I’m not going to rely on traditional media to get this book out…

I’m going to be relying on you.

I’m relying on you to help get this book into the hands of more people. 

This will continue to educate the public about the lies of the food industry and let them know how they’ve been duped. We exposed their dirty ingredients in the first book, and we are exposing their dirty tactics in the second.

Many food corporations have NO DESIRE to help us be healthy. They want to continue selling us their sugary, toxin-ridden products. There is nothing admirable about selling food that makes people sick. Just like we got major multi-billion dollar corporations to change in the past, we will do it again when their lies are finally revealed in this book.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting the pre-order of this book, asking your local bookstores to carry it, and for sharing this with your friends. You are courageously helping me stand up to the Big Food industry that always puts their profits over people. It needs to stop.

  1. The news might cover it, they went nuts for the glyphosate in Cheerios report, which was inconvenient as hell. That story was everywhere.

    I hope everyone reads your new book! I’m excited to read it!

  2. Happy to see so much inconvenience and putting the clamps down on multiple industries in the production of foodstuffs, industries which are mis -feeding us all and contributing to the worldwide health crisis. Looking forward to the book and spreading the word.

  3. Your first book started my family and friends on the road to recovery! We are almost 100% Organic now and have never felt better! Looking forward to your next fact filled book- Thank You
    P.S. If there was a place on your site for small donations ($5,$10) that would help you donate some books to schools and libraries , I’d be in!!

  4. Go Vani! Its ironic to see their tactics turned agsinst them! If they had left you alpine you wouldn’t have gone digging and exposed so much more than you expected. I spent a week in the US recently and i couldn’t believe the amount of fast food available, it made me realize how important your work is.

    1. Are you considering a audio version? I only have time for reading while I’m driving or flying for work but I would love a copy of a audio version.

  5. Vani, you are the Upton Sinclair of our time. The food industry needs to be taken to task for their toxic, profit-driven agendas, and the FDA cannot be trusted. I can’t tell you how many times I talk about you and your very necessary work with my friends and family. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all you do. Keep fighting the good fight!
    P.S. I just pre-ordered your book and can’t wait to read it.

  6. Vani, I pre-ordered your book and order your products & will continue to support your efforts. I live in Wisconsin where welfare runs rampet, people just don’t have the mindset to walk away from cheep food sources. I even attempted to vote out the people who keep making bad food and chemicals a reality. I am a maker of organic natural healing soaps. People just don’t understand the concept of taking care of them selves away from going to see the Dr. But it’s people like you and me and everyone else who’s spreading the word that makes a difference and we just can not give up. We know the FDA supports and promotes the bad food industry, supported by big pharma and the Medical Industrial complex who are all against naturalists I always said there is no money in good health and Doctors practice medicine in this country by law, So few know anything about nutrition, in fact most people, like myself don’t learn about nutrition until they get really sick and learn it on their own. You were one of the people who got me through the sickness of eating main stream food and back on the road to recovery. For that I am forever grateful. So you just ignore the nay sayers and keep pushing, WE APPRECIATE YOU!
    Thank you for all you do♥

  7. Hi Vani,

    It’s too bad that there are haters out there who oppose the good that you’re doing for the benefit of everyone.

    I’m going to be truthful, Vani. I cannot afford your products and books but, I’m happy that you’re helping those who can. Hopefully, I will be able to afford them one day. No hating from me.

    Keep up the fantastic job that you’re doing for us all!!! We’re all benefiting one way or another.

  8. Thank you for being willing to take all the abuse that the “haters” will dish out. Without brave people like you we’d all still be in the dark. Behind you all the Way!!!!

  9. My rheumatoid arthritis came on like lightning. One day I woke up and there it was. I was healthy all my life, I thought I ate very healthy but apparently not. I have been following the food babe for a few years now and with switching my eating habits two all organic vegetables and fruits, grass-fed Meats I am on the mend.
    Thank you Vani for all you do, please keep up the good work.

  10. Your post mentions FOIA requests that turned up internal emails. If you don’t want to release the results of your FOIA requests publicly, consider providing them to a nonprofit org like that has experience dealing with chemical and ag industry stories and can expand upon your work.

  11. I recently heard you on the podcast, “The Skinny Confidential,” which led me to your website. I’m only just dipping my toes in learning about the food and health industry and more and more my mind is blown by all the nonsense we’re led to believe. I continue to hear about how our diets are connected to so many health issues and diseases and yet it’s often not acknowledge by the food or conventional health industry. The more I learn, the more fascinated and terrified I am about what’s happening in the US. I just pre-ordered your book and cannot wait to read more! Thanks for all you do!

  12. Thank you for all you have done and are doing to promote clean, healthy eating. Words cannot describe how appreciative we are. We hope more people will learn the truth, are more receptive to change for the better, and are supportive of what you are trying to do. Check out our website when you get a chance:
    Best to you. Stay strong!
