聽說過 IG 諾貝爾獎嗎?

這兩天看 Joe Schwarcz教授的書: Is That a Fact?: Frauds, Quacks, and the Real Science of Everyday Life 讀到的.
IG 諾貝兒獎是獎給那些先讓人笑再讓人思考的科研, 每年有10個頒獎.
Schwarcz教授的書裏舉了一個例子是某法國科學家, 給不加鈣粉的雞喂鉀麥片,母雞照樣生蛋, 通過研究他認為雞體內發生了核聚變, 鉀核變聚成鈣(蛋殼)......1993年他獲得IG 諾貝爾獎,
Is that a Fast? 是一本非常值得一讀的書, 裏麵講了很多跟日常生活息息相關卻被媒體公司醫藥行業誤導的實例. 比如: 營養素, 減肥運動器材,有機無機食品等等.
網上抄來幾個IG 諾貝爾獎, 看看標題就要笑了......
