Suds & Science
It’s not a scientific mystery that learning is more fun when you’re drinking with friends and colleagues. And thus, the idea for Suds & Science was born: bimonthly events that bring scientists face-to-face with the general public in a neighborhood bar. The evening begins with a 15- to 20-minute fun-yet-informative presentation, which kicks off an extended discussion between the scientist and the audience—all while the audience drinks along. You can learn about everything from the science of beer to superhero physics to the genius of genomes. All of that for the price of a beverage! Suds & Science puts the fun and spirit(s) back into science.

Topic: The Truth about Food: How the sustainer of life can become poison.
It's commonly known that some foods are better for you than others, but did you know that even foods and beverages normally considered healthy can have additives or contaminants that can make them unhealthy, hazardous and even life-threatening? Do charred burgers really cause cancer? Will mercury in fish disrupt your nervous system? Is caffeine addiction real? Oftentimes, it's not so much what you eat but how much you eat that makes the difference. Join speakers from this year's Society of Toxicology Annual Meeting, being held in San Diego, to learn what you can safely consume, what you should be cautious about, and why.
