Stripping Down Science

The Naked Scientist Exposes The Facts




56 massive science myths laid bare

Why does a lap dancer earn bigger tips when she's at her most fertile? Can just the whiff of a woman send a man's hormones surging? And were dinosaurs hot-blooded too? Is it true that diet portions actually make people fatter? Can toads really predict earthquakes? And what causes those ... what's the word I'm looking for ... tip-of-the-tongue experiences?

Thankfully not lost for words in this enlightening and humorous foray into the world of science, Dr Chris Smith - The Naked Scientist - strips down science to its bare essentials to sort fact from fiction and replace myths and misinformation with some seriously interesting medical, technological and biological breakthroughs.
