Ben Goldacre: Battling Bad Science

One of MrT’s science blogging heroes, Dr. Ben Goldacre, runs the Bad Science blog and Guardian column. Over the last few years, he has been dedicated to highlighting the problems of bad science in the media and dodgy claims – by looking at the actual evidence. Some great sources for TOK and Biology, and now he has a TED Talk. Enjoy!

Remember: “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence” [Sagan’s Standard]
