This course is a light-hearted review of the segments of chemistry that have relevance to our day-to-day lives. For example: What does the warning of phenylketonurics on diet soda cans mean? What is an omega-3? Why does baby formula from China contain melamine? And, why does my peanut butter contain partially hydrogenated vegetable oils? The information is presented without the math and infinite detail necessary in a normal chemistry course. A review of basic chemistry is followed by an introduction to organic and biochemistry.
