We are reading Ingredients, a book that promises to make chemistry more fun than Hogwarts. First-time author George Zaidan investigates the stuff inside stuff and tries to answer the question of whether you should eat that cheeto or not. 

Find out what we thought about the book, and hear from Zaidan himself as he reads an excerpt and talks about the strangest medical case studies and scientific uncertainty.

You can also read the full review of Ingredients here.

Next month, we’re due for a bit of a change of pace as we read Gemma Milne’s Smoke & Mirrors: How Hype Obscures the Future and How to See Past It. 

If you, dear listener, have any thoughts on Ingredients or know of a book you would like us to discuss in an upcoming book club, let us know in the comments below or tweet at us @ChemistryWorld.
