What was the author’s main message in pseudoscience

That you shouldn’t believe everything you see on tv, this text tells you that you should look into the subject (For example ribena) instead of believe that it has four times as much vitamin c than in oranges you should look into it and experiment it  


What are some of the differences between scientists and advertisers?

Scientists Advertisers
They do more research and look into the subject They don’t tell the full story and don’t look into if they are right or not
The tell you the truth They tell lies so you can buy their product


Write 3 sentences explaining something new you’ve learned from this reading. 

I learnt what pseudoscience means, it means that people usually bend the truth by saying that something (like carrots) can help you see in the dark, but carrots don’t help they are just good for your eyes. Also talking about carrots, i learnt carrots do not help you see in the dark, i’m dumb and i thought they did. Last thing is that ribena got sued for misleading information and saying something that wasn’t true
