Become an Educated Consumer of Science and Chocolate

Hear National Public Radio discuss "junk science" in the June 8, 2015 story What Junk Food Can Teach Us About Junk Science focused on a medical study purposely designed to be junk.

"A little more than a week ago, the study's lead author, Johannes Bohannon, made a startling confession: The study was a hoax! And, what's more, he wasn't Johannes Bohannon — affiliate of the fictional Institute for Diet and Health — but journalist John Bohannon, out to make a point about the media's willingness to uncritically report and promote junk science."

What responsibilities do we have to be CRITICAL evaluators of information?
