Science about Science, an independent charity, has produced an excellent leaflet with scientists debunking some of the pseudo-scientific claims made by celebrities. For instance, David Baddiel, Melinda Messenger and Sharron Davies have all complained that their bodies contain dangerous chemicals. What they neglect to mention is that the exposure is so tiny it will not have any damaging effect on their health. And Jamie Oliver says he prefers organic food because it is “grown with nature”. Yet all our crops and domestic animals have been created by selective breeding over 10,000 years.
