Food Hysteria

Food Hysteria is a big problem in regards to issues surrounding food/ag science and food/ag industries at large.

Activists, who feel they are doing the right thing, spread misinformation and scare others into their cause. Unfortunately, these activists are all pawns of the groups spreading the misinformation as more members and more angry people brings them more credibility and ultimately, more money.

It will never matter how much research is done. 600 studies and over 25 yrs already isn't enough. The real answer is science literacy so people don't fall under the spell of the Mercola, Natural News, and CSPI's of the world.
