The National Science Foundation recently released their biennial report on the state of science understanding, education, research and investment. The report titled Science and Engineering Indicators 2002 included a survey of American’s attitudes about science. The Survey found that 70 percent of adults in the United States do not understand the scientific process, that belief in “pseudo-science” is common and that science literacy had improved only slightly since the last survey. It would be interesting to see how the chiropractic profession compares to the general population of Americans in this regard.
