Kevin Folta, a University of Florida professor, is one of the most well-known and well-respected food-science minds in the nation. The fact that he gets criticized by anti-ag folks is no surprise. Sometimes, the attack on him is so egregious that he needs to respond — something he does with the backing of science, logic, and level-headed detail.
On Friday, Folta made this post on his blog, where he dives into the meaning of trust and why that’s so important to the food discussions of today. The title of it is “Food Babe Vani Hari Attacking Public Scientists Again.”
