So much of our life relies on science, but what if science itself can't be relied on? Medicine, education, psychology, health, parenting – wherever it really matters, we look to science for advice. In this fascinating talk, Science Fictions author Dr Stuart Ritchie begins to dismantle the disturbing flaws & misinformation that undermine our understanding of all of these fields and more.

From widely accepted theories about ‘priming’ and ‘growth mindset’ to claims about genetics, sleep, microbiotics, as well as a host of drugs, allergies and therapies, we can trace the effects of unreliable, overhyped and even fraudulent papers in austerity economics, the anti-vaccination movement and dozens of bestselling books – and occasionally count the cost in human lives.
