  • i have a small black magnet that got smashed by a super strong magnet and the pieces looked exactly like the “rocks” in the baby food

  • Why don’t you make your life easier and just give us the perfect diet.. and stop benefiting from being verbally abusive to other people.. your are a waste and a terrible role model!

  • Watching video of doctor debunking Instagram medical terms YouTube’s ads so what is the best way to get rid of foot fungus well most doctors will say me skip

  • I feel bad for people with mental illness/disorders or anything else. My mom has OCD and it ain’t “a blessing” or “pretty” I don’t know why people think it’s so cool to have these disorders/illness that affected daily life. Just to be “quirky” please. For the love of god stop trying to be cool or “different. Because it stops people with the actual mental problems from getting help. It’s not cute buddy

  • I just assumed the black bits in babyfood was iron since it said fortified… thats pretty common. When I was in grade school our teacher had us crush up cereal and take a magnet to it and it looked exactly like that

  • It’s amazing how pro Ana content has mutated over the years to fit the most accessible ways to transmit content online. I was on crappy pro-Ana websites back in 2003, way before social media existed, made by teens on angelfire and geocities. They were almost like e-shrines to worship Ana and Mia like they were goddesses, with pages for thinspiration, tips and tricks, movies and music related to ED, and other triggering content. As long as there are people with EDs there will be pro-Ana content

  • Given that the “meat glue”, or transglutaminase is an enzyme, it will denature and yeah, just be ripped into pieces on a molecular level when heat is applied to it. As a biochemist, I always hated that kind of content which are exactly what you say they are, fearmongoring amongst the population. Just because something is “synthetic” does not mean it is not healthy / safe. Snake venom is as natural as it gets, would any of you without suicidal tendencies want to inject it into your bloodstream?

  • After I saw that they said ice cream is adulterated with washing powder my face went dark and I was like, “What kind of stupid bozo would believe this stupid myth!? (other than Blossom of course)”

  • Food does not help migraine headaches for crying out loud. Some foods can make it worse. Okay, caffeine in small amounts can help a minor migraine (large amounts can make the migraine worse). But other than that, rest, ice, a dark room, medication, and time are the things that are necessary to make a migraine go away. And same with thyroid. If you have low or high thyroid hormone levels, you take medicine to fix it. Why are some people so scared of medicine?

  • Omg when u said women tend to diet at the age 8 i remembered when i would keep running at my house and doing 100 crunches nonstop everyday when I was only 9!!!!! I wanted to eat “””clean””” and be very skinny but i didn’t understand about food (of course). Thank God it didn’t affect very much my childhood. When i look back I can only think: this is sick.

  • I am SO MUCH more offended by the fact that you felt the need to apologize for merely mentioning patriarchy and feminism than I ever could be about anything else you’ve ever said. If some of your more sexist or oppressed or terribly misinformed or under informed viewers don’t understand that we are in FACT living in a patriarchy, or if they think feminism is a dirty word, then they can go ahead and f*ck right off. We need strong, smart women like you to really stand up against that type of ignorance and not back down just because it might lose you a tiny iota of your viewers. Maybe it’s just a polite Canadian thing that I don’t understand but personally I think some people deserve to get offended, especially if they are spewing hate that is harmful to the health, happiness, and success of women everywhere.

  • THIS IS IN OUR FOODS! Propyl acetate
    2-Methylpropyl acetate, Propanol, n-Butyl acetate, 2-Methylpropanol, 2-Methylbutyl acetate, n-Butyl propanoate, n-Butanol, n-Pentyl acetate
    2-Methylbut-3-enyl acetate
    3-Methylbut-3-enyl acetate
    3-Methylbut-2-enyl acetate
    n-Hexyl acetate
    E-Hex-3-enyl acetate
    Z-Hex-3-enyl acetate
    Hex-4-enyl acetate
    E-Hex-2-enyl acetate
    1 -Methoxy-4-(2-propenyl)-benzene, ITS A DANG APPLE! Eat your apples.

  • I cannot imagine the patience it takes to watch, then debunk these. As someone with limited knowledge on food science, even I can’t watch Blossoms videos all the way through!

  • The rumour about ice cream having washing agent was started by an indian mother whose child kept asking for ice cream….there is a possibility of it being my mom.
    PS. I haven’t had ice cream for over 5 years.

  • I remember when one of my classmates were talking about pH. I think she was talking about a food or something and how it’s good for her pH and I pointed out how your pH is tightly regulated and how even the smallest variation out of the small normal range could be incredibly dangerous

    turns out she was talking about vaginal pH.

    I don’t know anything about that and felt really stupid

  • Just in case someone is wondering; yes, there’s a slight error in the video: NaHCO3 (sodium bicarbonate) is baking soda. Baking powder has baking soda combined with an acid.
    But I’m certain Ann knows this basic fact and it’s just an accidental switcheroo between powder and soda; it happens.

  • Actually people don’t make things after watching a video. People like me Just enjoy watching videos. This is the reason why ASMR videos are so viral nowadays

  • Honestly I hope that this comment gets a lot of traction because not enough people seem to be realizing this. In America we do not have free healthcare. Eating Disorders do not discriminate and lots of lower class people can have disordered eating. Telling people on Tik Tok to get professional help instead of taking recovery into their own hands is ignorant because not everyone can get help. Not everyone has the money or resources in their area. Not everyone is out to their parents with their eating disorder. Not everyone has support around them or the financial ability to go in-patient. The amount of comments of get professional help it’s honestly very triggering.
    I’ve been struggling for so long and I’ve had to take recovery into my own hands because there is no way I will be able to afford therapy or inpatient in my area��

  • I think that a locking box is a good tool for people starting out to learn about what “self control” looks like but it should eventually transitioned out of your life once you get the hang of it.

  • So many problematic things you just said in this cringy video. Go watch chikara transformations. She made a beautiful video on your bullcrap.

  • okay but lavender does help you relax. but only in the sense that the smell is calming (to most people) I wouldn’t even believe that it would balance your ph that is complete nonsense

  • I have recovered from orthorexia and plummeted straight into binge eating disorder, I have bought all the books on intuitive eating and tried my hardest to follow along for about 4 years all that happened was a 15lb gain in weight each year, I am now working with a psychologist and I have bought one of those food safes and it works wonders for me, I have had a good chat with her about how I use it and how it makes me feel and she agrees that it is a great tool for me to have. I love your usual content but this one upset me.
