4. What is the nature of science and “break-throughs”?
5. How was the study conducted? What was actually tested? What statements can we make as a result of the findings?
6. How does science intersect with human emotion? How do we reconcile the slow-moving pace of science with the reality that people are living with real diseases that threaten their lives?
7. Scanny shares some stories that illustrate this tension between evidence and human beings, our environment, and our emotions.
8. Are there instances where it is OK to over-state the threat of things like sugar? When is acceptable and when is it disingenuous?
9. How do we interact with substances that aren’t “bad” for us - like water, cardiovascular exercise, driving, or sugar - but also have the ability to kill us? What are we to do with this dichotomy of life?
10. Are we better off ignoring the realities of life? Should we shield ourselves and society from these dichotomies? Are we less human by avoiding the complexities of life? Will we lose our ability to adapt to difficult circumstances?
