Dangerous Products: In the Home and in our Stomachs

November 26, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Societal and scientific consensus says we should not fear Wi-Fi, artificial sweeteners, and fluoridated water. However, legitimately dangerous products that are flammable, toxic, radioactive, or generally bad for you have been sold as safe in the past. Join Virginia Ng and David Frank as we look at products throughout history that killed, injured, or poisoned, and the marketing campaigns that went along with them. We’ll explore formerly dangerous products that turned out to be fine, things we know are bad for us and consume anyway, and even some products that may turn up on our kitchen tables this Thanksgiving.
