These days, we laugh at people who think it's safe to keep a fridge in the house. It seems pretty unthinkable to keep one of those deadly stress-inducing monsters in our kitchen. But how did we find out the adverse effects of the once-mighty refrigerator on human health? Well, it started with science. Raw science.
But what is this 'science' thing? Well, for the purposes of keeping the public informed, the Kitchen Defense League has drawn up a handy diagram to help you, the public, differentiate the real studies from the fake ones. Keep it handy!
As you can see, science cuts through the nonsense and tells us what we need to know. Our obsession with rushing through technology means we sometimes forget to examine the potential health effects of the machines we use. But, once you've found the cause, how do you explain it? Patience. I'll address that in my next post.
