Celebrities like to talk about science too.
To try and counter some on the nonsense they spout, science information charity Sense About Science has launched a leaflet to point out some of the worst celebrities' "science" quotes and a helpline so that they can phone to check their facts before they open their cake holes.
One of my favourite comments comes from lifestyle "guru" Carol Caplin (favourite of Cherie Blair) who says:
women should be informed about avoiding breast cancer and that they should be "keeping the lymph system clear and unclogged".
to which Michael Baum, emeritus professor of surgery at University College London replies:
"Carol's idea ... has no meaning whatsoever. It is not based on knowledge of anatomy or physiology of the human body, let alone of breast cancer."
