Where do you get your science information from?
Doesn’t matter what kind of science – be it health, environmental, astrophysics, agriculture, geology, whatever – I’m curious as to where people get their scientific facts from.
Do any non-scientists ever read scientific journals (or do any scientists read journals from outside their field of training)? Popular magazines? Scientific American? Health care professionals? The media? Government agencies (like Health Canada or Stats Canada or Environment Canada or the BC Centre for Disease Control)? Random forwarded emails telling you that [fill in name of common food or drug] causes [fill in name of disease]?
