Here’s a FoodBabe quote from her blog on air travel tips:
“The air you are breathing on an airplane is recycled from directly outside of your window. That means you are breathing everything that the airplanes gives off and is flying through. The air that is pumped in isn’t pure oxygen either, it’s mixed with nitrogen, sometimes almost at 50%. To pump a greater amount of oxygen in costs money in terms of fuel and the airlines know this!”
Wow. I don’t even…*head explodes* How can she be this stupid and put her pants on in the morning without help? Where to begin? The Earth’s atmosphere is about 80% nitrogen and 20% oxygen. Apparently she thinks it’s pure oxygen and that there’s an airline consipiracy to dilute the oxygen to save money. THAT RIGHT THERE should be enough to discount everything else that comes out of her oxygen deprived brain. (And I’d love to know how exhaust is supposed to reenter the cabin when it’s left behind at 3/4 Mach.)
The rest of the article is just as absurd. Here’s another one:
“When your body is in the air, at a seriously high altitude, your body under goes some serious pressure. Just think about it – Airplanes thrive in places we don’t. You are traveling in a pressurized cabin, and when your body is pressurized, it gets really compressed!”
Jesus wept. Air pressure in a pressurized cabin is LESS THAN it is at sea level, it’s roughly like Denver. You’re not being “compressed” (unless you’re from Bolivia or Peru). Where does she pull these “facts” from? Has she ever attempted to self check anything she posts? Does her audience even care that she is pretty much straight up lying constantly?
Tetrodotoxin, cyanide and ricin are GMO-free, natural and organic, and only slightly more dangerous than this woman having access to the internet.
