Chef Our Beef With BuzzFeed's Viral Article On 8 Dangerous Foods

So I got an email from a publicist asking me if I was interested in what has become a tremendously popular story on BuzzFeed titled "8 Foods We Eat In The US That Are Banned In Other Countries."...

...And I get it: No one would choose to eat a toxic chemical. But the claims made by the author based on a book by Dr. Jayson Calton and Mira Calton called Rich Food, Poor Food are out of date and misleading.
