The point of this blog is to write about topics in science, history, and medicine. Mainly, I will cover things I see in the media or pop culture that are distortions of actual facts. Post a comment about a topic and I will look into it (I have too much time on my hands).
In a more general sense, I think our current American culture is steeped in anti-intellectualism. The media has come to value Jenny McCarthy’s opinion on science and vaccines more than an actual medical doctor. People proudly reject the opinion of experts in favor of pseudoscience and complete rubbish. Hopefully, we can reverse this trend.
