    Default Bad Science

    As we all know, the internet is an infinite pool of information! Which is fantastic, but can also be dangerous. We all want to be informed and feel confident that we are making the best decisions for our families. It is very concerning that parents will be turning to the internet to find information on things as important as vaccinating and they may come across 'scientific research' which is neither valid or reliable, and doesn't meet basic scientific principles (this goes for both sides of the debate).

    The recent spate of research articles posted in the debate section shows that it can be difficult to determine what information should be trusted when making these important decisions.

    So, I thought this little chart on how to identify 'Bad Science' might help!

    I'd love to read this but can't bring it up to be big enough to read the smaller typing?

    Also, most of the websites that promote bad science have a little shopping trolley icon in the top right if the screen.... ;-)
