Following the clean-up of the British egg industry, is it still really necessary for pregnant women to avoid eating all but the most thoroughly cooked eggs? Very early on in my pregnancy I found myself heading towards Bayswater for no other reason than a need to satisfy a sudden intense craving for a parmesan custard from Le Cafe Anglais. My desire was so strong I could smell it - £4.75 worth of wobbly, cheesy goodness was going to be mine, and nothing was going to keep me from it. No one would know, I reasoned, so why not, just this once?

Add a green glow to your ski holiday by staying in one of these stylish mountain retreats, from low-impact plush 'pods' in Switzerland to a 100-year-old French chalet 1. Alta Terra, Lavigerie, France A stone's throw from the laid-back village of Lavigerie, in the volcanic Auvergne region - one of France's most undiscovered ski destinations - this lodge ticks all the boxes.

As celebrities endorse nonsensical diets and journalists lend credence to anecdote over science, are we heading for disaster? Will anecdote, rumor and buzz oust science as the basis for individual decision-making and public policy? If so, will it give rise to societal disintegration and disaster? Climate historian and physicist Spencer Weart thinks it's possible Weart mused recently on what a historian 200 years from now might say about early 21st century discussions of climate change, but his speculations are also relevant to other areas of science.
