About this page
In Session 1, we'll be discussing how to evaluate information to find the best sources for projects, as well as the information that you will need in your everyday life.
You get the following e-mail: "On the Ellen show, Sheryl Crow said bottled water is what caused her breast cancer. It has been identified as the most common cause of the high levels of dioxin in breast cancer tissue. Sheryl Crow's oncologist told her: women should not drink bottled water that has been left in a car. The heat reacts with the chemicals in the plastic of the bottle which releases dioxin into the water. Dioxin is a toxin increasingly found in breast cancer tissue. So please be careful and do not drink bottled water that has been left in a car. Pass this on to all the women in your life." After doing some further research, decide whether this is good advice.
