Anthony Warner is a food and science writer, and the author of The Angry Chef blog.

Anthony studied Biochemistry at Manchester University before deciding that the heat of the professional kitchen was the career for him. After ten years in restaurants, hotels and events-catering he became a food development chef, working on some of the UK’s best-known brands and products.

In 2016 he started The Angry Chef blog, dedicated to debunking the pseudoscience surrounding the way we think about food and health, and in the space of a few short months has amassed an army of followers.

His first book, The Angry Chef: Bad Science and the Truth about Healthy Eating, was published in January 2018, and it was followed by his second book, The Truth about Fat, in January 2018; both were published by Oneworld. Anthony is currently working on his new book.

Wow. Even by his own dismal standards, this is an abject new low for Aseem Malhotra.

To be clear, this is a GMC-registered doctor targeting vulnerable pregnant women with wildly inaccurate disinformation.

And I will say it again, @gmcuk - how on *earth* can you permit this?

I heard a lot recently about how genes can’t change in 60 years. If you envision this as gene mutations happening and then spreading then its true. But there are other mechanisms by which allele frequencies can change. And they can happen rapidly. 1/

holy infant so tender and mild implies the existence of a cursed infant so chewy and spicy

After several years of pain, loss, grief, trauma, sweat, tears, and rewrites, my new book 'Emotional Ignorance - Lost and found in the science of emotion' is now a physical thing

If a neuroscientist dissecting his own grief-riddled psyche is appealing, this is the book you need

The fact that dudes go on a diet but they call it "biohacking" is so funny to me.

Like if men started knitting they would call it "hyper threading" or "powertangling" or some shit

There’s no way we feed the world’s population, especially as it’s increasingly distributed in urban areas, and as climate change affects arable land and water use, with small-scale, “agroecological” production. Using that claim as a basis for critique of food tech is nonsense.

I laughed and laughed before it slowly dawned on me that the author isn’t in on the joke. And presumably most of the RTs aren’t either.

A forensic dissection of what is close to a scandal. Editors and reviewers systematically ignored deep flaws in data and how it was presented because the topic was click-bait. Thousands of gullible scientists uncritically cited the work

The United States Drug Induced Liver Injury Network (DILIN) just published their series on turmeric related severe liver injury.

A 🧵 on why this paper is useful, in the context of turmeric as a dietary supplement and

why considering food as medicine is a stupid thing to do 1/


It's so weird that people are saying that the late Angela Lansbury made an unforgettable debut in Gaslight when no movie of that title even exists.

Do doses of fat respond the same way as glucose?

Back in June, Aseem Malhotra said he was "honoured to receive" an award "from the Chair of the BMA". Except the award wasn't from the BMA. Or given to him by its Chair. Malhotra was lying.

The newly released BMA review of the debacle is quite a read...

Weight loss advice isn't based on good evidence

Covid sceptic lawyer Reiner Fuellmich was recently kicked off his own "investigative committee" for undisclosed reasons. Last week stories emerged that Fuellmich has been accused of embezzling over a million pounds in donations! It's an eye opening story.

Aseem Malhotra yesterday held a press conference calling for a halt to covid vaccinations, hosted by the "World Council for Health" - a group of quacks, 5G conspiracy theorists and anti-vaxxers. 🤦‍♂️

Here's what you missed... 🧵

Covid cranks spent the last two weeks hyping "something massive" coming out about covid vaccines. We now know this is a paper by Aseem Malhotra, who's gone from dog whistling to openly working with anti-vax disinformation groups. It's all turning into a bit of a circus... 🧵

@NoMaloneZone @qandamazon I’ve read it so you don’t have to! (Though read it. It’s short, at least.)

We begin by noting that vaccines save lives – true. We go on to discuss the author going on breakfast television – also true (I understand) but not normally the stuff of the scientific literature. 1/
