SciBabe (real name Yvette d’Entremont Née Guinevere) is a Monsanto shill chemist, pin-up lady and science communicator best known for an epic takedown of Food Babe posted on Gawker.[1]

Background[edit]

SciBabe holds three degrees, one in Theater, a Bachelor's of Science in Chemistry and a Master's in Forensic Science (focused on biological criminalistics, whatever that means).[2]

Work for Monsanto[edit]

Before becoming a science communicator on the internet, Guinevere worked in testing labs for Monsanto. This has, of course, lead to many of her detractors accusing her of being a shill for them.

Takedown of Food Babe[edit]

Hari's rule? "If a third grader can't pronounce it, don't eat it." My rule? Don't base your diet on the pronunciation skills of an eight-year-old.

SciBabe exploded onto the scene with an article on Food Babe. In it SciBabe debunks major talking points about Food's appendicitis, her abuse of the word toxic, organic foodstuffs and how the preying on fear is her weapon. The topic of banning over supposed shilling, racism or sexism is brought up while also mentioning that Food Babe only seems to be okay when it comes from her, selling products she recommends at ridiculous markups.

Most importantly SciBabe talks about food allergies and how lying about them at Food Babe's request is causing severe damage to people who actually have food allergies, like SciBabe herself. Unlike most people who espouse a gluten-free diet, SciBabe is one of the few people who actually has to adhere to it due to having coeliac disease. As the prevalence of these fake allergies rises, their effects can have be detrimental to people with the actual disease. If, for example, so many fakes come in to a restaurant and order with a "hold the gluten", some businesses might flat out ignore this and then persons with coeliac who order the same thing might suffer severe complications.
