Science in The City: Dangerous Products
Societal and scientific consensus says we should not fear Wi-Fi, artificial sweeteners, and fluoridated water. However, legitimately dangerous products that are flammable, toxic, radioactive and generally bad for you have been sold as safe in the past. Join Virginia Ng and David Frank as we look at products throughout history that killed, injured and poisoned, and the marketing campaigns that went along with them.
COVID-19 Numbers: ‘Put It In Perspective’
