Tox on Tap Saskatoon: Radiation, Bananas and Dihydrogen Monoxide: The role of bad science in making decisions

April 22, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Any talk about radiation immediately brings to mind images of disasters such as Fukushima, people in protective suits, and fear. But are the fear and concerns over the risks of radiation really warranted or are they the result of hype and misunderstanding science – and is that misunderstanding leading to real harm? Dr. Neil Alexander, Executive Director of the Fedoruk Centre, will offer his perspective and question some of society’s enduring nuclear beliefs (but don’t just take his word for it).

Moderator: Dr. Barry Blakley, Professor, Toxicology Centre and Veterinary Biomedical Sciences, University of Saskatchewan

Admission is free; must be 19 years of age or older.
