Pseudoscience reigns at UK food agency

The food safety bureaucrats who say cook food until it’s piping hot have come out with an entire publication about what it means to be science-based.

The U.K. Food Standards Agency says science is fighting back against pseudoscience and asks whether the Agency has played a role in this.

For an agency with multi-millions to spend on food safety communication, why can’t they get the science right, and stick it in?

Use a tip-sensitive digital thermometer. Color and piping hot are pseudoscience.
