Vani Hari on “The Food Babe Way”Author Vani Hari talks about her investigation of food companies and products. She explains that most decisions about what goes in our foods are made without the FDA’s knowledge or ours. MSG and hidden MSG additives can be used as a flavor enhancer, artificial sweeteners slow down your metabolism, and the most common GMO ingredients are soy, corn, and canola. Vani and her team have recently addressed a couple of fast food restaurants to limit the number of questionable ingredients in their products. Vani encourages everyone to read the ingredients in their food.
