Scientific literacy of America

Stashed in: America!, Charts!

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

14% of Americans think sound travels faster than light.

20% disagree that the center of the earth is hot.

33% disagree that the earth goes around the sun once a year.

45% believe antibiotics kill viruses as well as bacteria.

But my favorite is that 49% of Americans think ordinary tomatoes do not have genes but genetically modified tomatoes do.
