Food Labels Don’t Science

We spend over 53 hours a year in grocery stores [1], and if people are anything like me, a lot of that time is spent holding two similar items and trying to decide which one we should put back on the shelf. We want to make decisions that are healthy for us, and good for the environment, and we don’t want to be ripped off. What makes this all the more complicated is that a lot of labels┬ájust aren’t at all back up by science. I’ve rounded up eight labels that I find most infuriating, in the hopes it will make your next grocery store visit a little less crazy.

Stay skeptical, and good luck out there!

The Geology of The Himalayas!

I recently travelled to India and went hiking in the Himalayas. While I was there I, of course, made a science video. They were not only spectacular to see, but they also have a spectacular history that dates back 130 million years. Check it out!

It’s About Time!

I’ve been a little more tardy than normal with the vids and blog posts, but I have a couple projects cooking in the editing-oven that I’m pretty excited about (including an on-site video about the geology of the Himalayas, and some big updates). More on that in my next post, but for now, here are a couple videos that I made this summer! I made a sundial, and I spent months counting my steps and science-ing about how quickly my shoes wear out. Check it out:

Stay tuned for more science soon!
