Effects of False and Misleading information on people

False or misleading information has a way of getting into people’s heads and having an effect on our lives. Please explore–based on substantiated evidence–“bad” ideas or information that have had a detrimental impact on a community. Consider how this idea/information is spread, who spreads it, and what the result has been in a community. Discuss also how you have come to understand that these ideas or this information are faulty: what is your source and how do you know it is reliable?
