Sense, Nonsense, and Science with Dr. Joe Schwarcz

Sense, Nonsense, and Science with Dr. Joe Schwarcz

Dr. Joe Schwarcz, Director of the McGill Office for Science and Society, joins us for Science Literacy Week 2023!

A little nonsense, now and then, is relished by the best of men.  These days, however, we seem to be dealing with more than just a little nonsense.  The Internet is filled with products that promise miraculous cures and magical weight loss schemes, health food stores equate “natural” with "safe" and the dead offer advice to the living through "mediums." Synthetic substances are looked upon as villains and some cosmetics advertise that they are “chemical-free.” Only a proper scientific investigation of these issues can separate sense from nonsense. 

Take a look at our Science Literacy Week calendar to find other great events on campus beginning September 18.
