Bad Science is Ben Goldacre’s Guardian column keeping a watch for all the misinformation the media put out there in their quest to out-sensationalise each other to the top of the sales rankings.

All your favourite scare stories are covered, from MMR to MRSA to atomic tomatoes. And, of course, the Daily Mail deservedly takes a lot of flak.
