Quotes

...My childhood was devoid of what some people are now calling " science capital ", a concept analogous to cultural capital in that possessing it can promote social mobility beyond one's socioeconomic status. Despite my lack of science capital, my secondary school science teachers were so good that I fell in love with the subject and have gone on to have a rewarding career as a science teacher and communicator. But not every child is as lucky as I was with my teachers, and many people can go through life without ever having the opportunity to engage with science. I'm not one of those people who think all children should be forced to study science until they're 18 , but I do believe that a genuine appreciation of science can enrich one's life in ways that literature, music and art cannot."
...Even the Oxford Dictionary defines a chemical as "a distinct compound or substance, especially one which has been artificially prepared or purified."

In a similar vein, a 2012 study by Netta Weinstein et al found that individuals who experienced low parental approval were sometimes motivated to...
"The systematic review of economic evidence showed that provision of CBT to people with schizophrenia in the UK improved clinical outcomes at no additional cost. This finding was supported by economic modelling undertaken for this guideline, which suggested that provision of CBT might result in net cost savings to the NHS, associated with a reduction in future hospitalisation rates."
