It’s a constant battle! Especially since advertising and marketing tend to perpetuate misinformation. My go-to example of “chemicals” is describing water to people as dihydrogen monoxide. Then citing how only an inch of dihydrogen monoxide can drown an infant and that it also causes huge natural disasters. Thank you so much for your comment!
