Watch This Film About Moms Who, Unlike Gwyneth Paltrow, Are Committed to Science

We hear a lot (way too much, really) about parents who are anti-vaxxers, who don’t take their kids to the doctor because God Will Provide, who use homeopathic “remedies” at home, who won’t feed their kids GMO-anything, etc. There’s so much misinformation out there — especially in the mommy-blogosphere — it’s infuriating.

A couple of years ago, Natalie Newell, a science advocate, decided to counter all that nonsense with a documentary focusing on mothers like herself who were committed to reality. The result was a 30-minute film called Science Moms.

That film is now available on YouTube, so be sure to watch it:

This is a film that will give a voice to the science-minded moms — the women who are too often drowned out by the fear mongers, the shamers, and the CelebMoms. Through interviews with “science moms” who are on the front lines of this struggle, we’ll dissect the bogus claims of these celebrities one by one and explain in simple language what the science really shows about GMOs, vaccines, homeopathy, and any of these topics that are often in the headlines, yet even more often are misunderstood.

It’s such a relief to know these mothers are out there, raising their kids with reason instead of giving in to the irrational nonsense people constantly throw in their direction.
