“Hmm, wait . . . is that formula?” a woman quips at a mom with a crying little one at a baby shower. “Ugh, no. I hate when people breastfeed in public. No one wants to see that,” another guest says, disgusted, just seconds after the mom explains her breastfeeding hurdles.

In a hilarious and honest video for his popular show Adam Ruins Everything, truTV host Adam Conover is looking to bust the most common myths about formula and prove once and for all that there’s no conclusive evidence to show it’s harmful to babies. “Formula isn’t just healthy and safe; it’s a literal lifesaver,” the video kicks in, before launching into a series of facts and historical anecdotes that show “formula isn’t poison” (sources on each of them appear on the top left corner of the video, by the way).
