Yes, I apologise. As mentioned at the beginning of my piece, this is a translation from an article in German, published in Switzerland. I am a native German-speaker, I speak and write 6 languages — some of them imperfectly — and some typos snuck into my translation. Read the original, you will see it is edited to your high standards. Thank you.

I am a scientist and writer. I aim to be a voice of reason and facts in this distorted world in which opinions are considered truth.
