The SciBabe's Guide to BS Detection from The Hub
Detoxes, fake medicine, and Gwyneth Paltrow, oh my! In the internet landscape of health and science, we frequently find ourselves confronted with fantastical information that sounds a lot like science. But how can you tell if something is science or pseudoscience? Does that new weight loss supplement with big promises work? Are there really foods that seem healthy that are secretly killing you right now? Does that new documentary really have the one cure for all cancers (that, for some reason, always involves kale)? Let Yvette d'Entremont, aka SciBabe, take you on a guided tour of a professional debunker's methods of deciphering science from BS. This giggle-inducing talk will walk you through debunking of the major hot topics in skepticism and give you the tools you need to never waste another minute- or dollar on bad science. Catapulted to fame by 4.5 million hits on her Gawker exposé of the Food Babe and a front-page LA Times article, SciBabe is on a crusade against bad science, pseudoscience, and other falsehoods. Yvette blogs about the anti-science community and debunks unwarranted claims ranging from natural food to homeopathy. Yvette, a former analytical chemist holds a B.A. in theatre, a B.S. in chemistry, and a master's degree in forensic science. Secular Hub members: $12 in advance, $15 at the door Nonmembers: $20 Ticket Purchase link: https://www.secularhub.org/calendar/eventdetail.php?id=30 Please come out to learn and support great science debunking in this time of fake...well, everything! Go science!!!
