Study: Google scrambling our perception of science reality

Abstract:
Google search suggestions have shifted public perceptions about nanotechnology away from science to health worries, finds a science communications study. Search engine reliance on popularity rather than accuracy to steer people to information likely distorts society's view of science, politics and elsewhere, suggest the study authors.
