Spinning Science: Getting to the Truth about Our Health
September 22, 2021 from 7 pm-8 pm (EST)
What is the truth about how to live a healthy lifestyle? Whether the issue is diet, exercise, sleep, gut health, genetics or emerging technologies, it has become increasingly difficult to separate the real science from the nonsense. In this era of "fake news", "alternative facts", "celebrity culture" and conspiracy theories, critical thinking skills are essential. Indeed, the spread of misinformation has become a defining issue of our time. In this fun and provocative talk, Timothy Caulfield will examine the social forces that are twisting science and how we can all cut through the noise to get to the truth about our health.

Relax, Dammit! Healthy and Happy in the Age of Anxiety
September 23, 2021 from 3 pm-4 pm (EST)
In this presentation, Timothy Caulfield will explore the things we all stress about in a typical day, from when we get out of bed to how much coffee to drink, to how our kids get to school, to how we handle our email, to how we can be more productive to whether we should sit on that dirty toilet seat. We make, and worry about, a thousand big and little decisions during our waking hours. Too often these decisions are dictated by concerns or beliefs about our world that simply aren’t true. These misperceptions impact our day-today decisions and, it will be argued, unnecessarily stress us out and cause us to waste time and money.
