How to separate sense from nonsense when our health is on the line?

The Library is excited to welcome Jonathan Jarry from the McGill Office for Science and Society to help us separate sense from nonsense during Science Literacy Week.

We are being bombarded with messages selling us revolutionary treatments and game-changing scientific discoveries when it comes to our health. Charlatans fill us with hope with their science-flavoured books, while the media too often emphasizes unreliable testimonies over scientific data. How can we separate sense from nonsense? The right tools can help us identify good science and warn us against dangerous falsehoods.
