Pseudoscience cover.
Fact or fiction.

by Sophie Fern

illustrated by Claire Tobin

Pseudoscience is something that sounds scientific but isn’t actually based on solid evidence. Advertisments often use pseudoscience, which can be misleading. To be able to tell the difference between real science and pseudoscience, we need to think like scientists. We can use our knowledge of what makes an investigation scientific to ask whether the information is trustworthy.
