EMOTIVE LANGUAGE IN SCIENCE
A campaign by those from Sense About Science to make lay people become aware of how emotive language affect their judgement and bias when it comes to topics on science, making it hard to distinguish from pseudoscience.
We're not asking everyone to start being really serious about organic chemistry and take a course (although that would be nice too!). We're just asking everyone to chill and get familiar with what it really means when people use "chemical", "toxic", "natural", etc. to describe a substance. Most of the time, its not what you think. Even most doctors have the wrong idea and are victims of pseudoscientific marketing ploys like "detox" diets.
BE AWARE! Know the word before using it :)
