OMG, I’m so guilty right now.
I just had a mini anxiety attack because of an article I read about bacon. No joke, I looked up the cancer-bacon thing to write this and ended up with a racing heart and sweaty palms.
“Bacon causes cancer!”
It’s been a while since the bacon scare; do you still eat bacon? Do you have bacon-induced colon cancer yet? Does anyone even know why this debate started?
After the thousands of articles I’ve read on cancer-causing bacon, I’m still not sure – should I eat bacon or not?
And dammit, I really want to know! We want to make good choices, but who the hell knows what good choices are anymore?
Who can we trust to give us real information about the crap we shove in our pie holes? Governments? Media? Food manufacturers? Scientists?
We just need someone to cut through the bullshit and give it to us straight.
Enter Eat My Science!
I’m here to be your teacher. I am here to help you navigate the bullshit internet world of industry-funded studies and sensationalized headlines. I’m here to teach you about your body so you can eat and live like the bad ass you are.
I’m Jadie, and I eat every day. I also love science, factual information, and am fascinated with the human body.
I have a BA and a BS degree, and no, it doesn’t stand for bullshit (although my husband sometimes refers to my 2 diplomas as “receipts”). I followed my two passions in life and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Theater and a Bachelor of Science in Biology.
I am an eater, like you. But I also know what the inside of your body looks like and how it works. And I have lots of hours devoted to the scientific method and experimental design.
So here’s the deal. I’m not a doctor. I’m not a journalist. I’m not a spokesperson for any special interest group. I do not work for any industry. I’m not a politician.
I am a mom, a wife, and an eater.
I want to be healthy, I want my family to be healthy, and I want you to be healthy. So please subscribe to Eat My Science to get some truth about this crazy world we eat in.
