Uninformed opinions are usually based on assumptions we’ve never really examined. Examples of popular assumptions that are largely unexamined include:
1. “Bottled water is safer and better for us than tap water.”
2. “Forest fires should always be prevented or suppressed immediately.”
3. “The fewer germs in their environment, the healthier the children.”
4. “The more soy we eat, the better.”
Identify and examine any one popular assumption for accuracy.
For example, you might tackle the bottle water assumption by visiting the FDA website <www.fda.gov> and the Sierra Club site <www.sierra.org> for starters. Also take a look at the Sierra Club’s twitter feed: <www.twitter.com/Sierra_Club>.
