Why I almost stopped writing.

I almost let corruption win.

When I started revealing how big food manipulates us, I thought everyone would be happy. And most people were.

But what about the companies we demanded change from? They were mad. And before I knew it, I became the target of a national smear campaign.

They called me a quack, a fearmonger, and a pseudoscientist. And they threatened me.

All I wanted to do was show people how to live a healthier life, and there I was. Getting death threats.

I became a mom, and I didn’t know whether it would be safe for me and my family. So, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to publish my new book…

…but then I realize it’s not just about me and my family. It’s about all of us. It’s about you. Your friends. Your children. Your family. And that’s why I knew I had to finish my book Feeding You Lies.

And wow. Yesterday was one of the best days ever. My book is finally available for pre-order, and seeing your reaction gives me hope…

“I am blown away that you wrote a book instead of cowering, it shows amazing courage” – Tammy“Just pre-ordered my copy. Thanks for taking this on!” – Elaine

“You got your army behind you! Thanks for all that you do to make us live a healthier life”– Jessica

Thank you so much.

Pre-ordering is very important in the book world.

It sends a signal to bookstores everywhere that they should carry Feeding You Lies when it comes out in February.

It also helps to ensure that bookstores are stocked up with enough copies. We need to get this book into the hands of more people, as quickly as possible, when it hits stores.

Available in stores everywhere

It’s so exciting to see this book come to life. It was a VERY emotionally draining book to write – but it had to be done.

I could not sit on the piles of information I’ve been compiling over the last 4 years and just keep it to myself. I want you to know everything that I now know about WHY and HOW the food industry manipulates us.

Even more so, I want to show you how to identify their lies, so you can move past them into a healthier way of life.

It’s not like any diet or health book you’ve ever read…

Feeding You Lies isn’t only a manifesto that recounts the sins of the food industry. I go beyond that…

I give you ACTION STEPS that protect you from cheap, processed, unhealthy foods and the health problems and suffering they cause.

I provide you with the knowledge you need to make informed decisions.

I help you overcome the obstacles standing in the way of your taking greater responsibility for your health.

I help you dig deeper and look for evidence of deception in today’s food world.

I help you take control of your life—and change it for the better.

Thank you SO much!!! Please forward this email to your loved ones to let them know about this book too.



P.S. Remember, pre-ordering is very important for helping this book get off the ground! After you place a pre-order, it 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.

  1. All a person has to do to see the truth in your claims is compare the ingredient labels on packaged food sold in the United States to labels on the same packaged food sold in most of Europe. I am proud and happy to support the work you are doing, Vani. Pre-ordered your book today.

  2. Never stop writing Vani! There are several people who have given into the harsh comments and threats. Companies and corporations don’t want the public to know how toxic the ingredients are used in foods in the US. Or the people that buy the products don’t like hearing about it and choose to not believe how harmful these foods can be. They have heard time and time again about the ingredients in the foods but still choose to buy the products.

    Hopefully a change can be made. This needs to get further out there. We need to make the people in the US realize this just like how many people who buy products in the UK and across Europe.

  3. Thank you for all the work you are doing Vani, it’s so very important and much appreciated.
    There are a lot of good changes happening around the world when it comes to healthy living and you are one of the people who play a key role in this.
    All the best to you and your family!

  4. Thanks for all your great work Vani! It is highly appreciated. all power to you. and you have been such a big hope and source of information for many of us here in Far off India too. hats off to your great health tips and serious exposes..keep them going!

  5. Thank you for your dedication & persistence in shining light on a previously dark area (the corruption and indecency of US Big Food Co’s). We appreciate your exhaustive efforts, your caring spirit, & most of all, your bravery in taking on such a powerful capitalist group. We are so lucky to have you as a consumer advocate! After all, if not you, then who?

  6. The only way things change is if we speak up. Someone has to be brave enough to start the conversation. Thank you for being so strong in the face of so much intimidation.
    It might have been understandable for companies to put chemicals in back in the 50’s before we knew the serious side effects but things are long overdone for better regulation. Companies know better now but they just don’t care as long as we don’t speak up.
    Their bottom line is shelf life and sales.
