WASHINGTON,June 27, 2017– The American Council on Science and Health, America's premiere pro-science consumer advocacy organization, will be releasing its newest work, the Little Black Book of Junk Science, on June 29th during a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.

"The Little Black Book of Junk Science is just what it sounds like," says Dr. Alex Berezow, Senior Fellow in Biomedical Science for the Council and author of the book. "Everyone talks about fake news but it is a little harder to know what junk science is if you are not an expert. This book is a pocket-sized reference that will allow the public to do just that. Family barbecues will never be the same!"

 

Following the opening remarks, a panel of experts including Dr. Berezow will talk about their most worrisome examples of junk science, the economic, cultural and policy implications of when junk science enters the national discussion, and what the grass roots pro-science community can do to prevent government decision-makers from using junk science in order to make political claims.

 

Please join us. If you plan to attend, email rsvp@acsh.org
