Debunking common misconceptions about chemicals


London-based Sense about Science, with support from the U.K.'s Royal Chemistry Society, has published a new edition of its guide, Making Sense of Chemical Stories (pdf). "The guide flags up the more serious misconceptions that exist around chemicals and suggests straightforward ways for people to evaluate them," explains the group via its website. Although the guide originally was intended for science news writers and editors, it is a useful resource for all science communicators.
