How does scientific information differ from other forms of info? *Consider the following taken from a website 1. Toxins Found During Pregnancy Unmistakably Linked To Autism o Look at information/data for yourself; don’t accept blindly 2. A Bacterium That Can Grow by Using Arsenic Instead of Phosphorous o Scientists question the findings of fellow scientists o Nobody could reproduce these findings meaning that the most likely  explanation would be contamination in the cultures.
