RADIATION, BANANAS, AND DIHYDROGEN MONOXIDE:
The role of bad science in making decisions
Dr. Neil Alexander | Tuesday April 28, 2015 from 6:30 - 9:00 pm - The Woods Alehouse
Any talk about radiation immediately brings to mind images of disasters such as Fukushima, people in protective suits, and fear. But are the fear and concerns over the risks of radiation really warranted or are they the result of hype and misunderstanding science – and is that misunderstanding leading to real harm? Dr. Neil Alexander, Executive Director of the Fedoruk Centre will offer his perspective and question some of society’s enduring nuclear beliefs (but don’t just take his word for it).
