Sense About Science

Sense About Science is a website which aims to respond to the misrepresentation of science and scientific evidence on issues relevant to society at large. Issues discussed include items like fluoride in tap water and the MMR vaccine to controversies about genetic modification, stem cell research and radiation. They work with scientists and civic groups to promote evidence and scientific reasoning in public discussion. Recent discussions include alternative medicine, MRI, detox, radiation, health tests and swine flu. Many articles are available to download on pdf format too. A really interesting site for anyone doing a science project and well worth a look just for interest's sake. Thanks to Mr. McConville, our school librarian for recommending Sense About Science to the Frog Blog.
