    Leave it to Nutrition Diva to separate fact from fiction. We are all too eager to jump on the latest rumor bandwagon, but she always stays calm and actually looks at the science before making a decision. Thanks Monica!

    Kudos to you Monica for injecting some much needed reason into the hysteria-fueled national condemnation of “pink slime”. Two of my pet peeves are scientific illiteracy and food waste, and in this case the former will be causing the latter. It reminds me a little of the fuss over GM foods, and of how Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging had to drop the “Nuclear” from its name before the public would accept MRIs. Thank you for once again defending reason in the face of uninformed panic.
