Each episode of The Science Enthusiast Podcast, Dan and I would highlight a reason “Why We Love the Internet.” If I was choosing a reason to love the internet right now, I’d choose the outpouring of reason and critical thinking directed at Stonyfield’s recent marketing malfunction.
A lot of great pieces have been written about Stonyfield, their scientifically illiterate take on GMOs, and the deserved backlash they received, so I wanted to archive them here, as a one-stop shop for anyone who wants the occasional reminder of what it looks like when we put our voices together and stand up for science.
