Many people used to hear this set-phrase at least once in their life time. No one really wondered much about the meaning of it saying it constantly in everyday life and repeating it after reporters on TV and using this phrase as one of their own. A Noble prize though is a subject matter of many scientists who strive for making a great achievement. Taking into account all the facts surrounding a Nobel Prize and the ceremony of granting it one has to keep in mind the following: 1. The ceremony of bestowing the Nobel Prize to various scientists and the organization itself first appeared in the year of 1897 after the death of Alfred Nobel the founder of the organization. It has been approved officially after the second attempt having Alfred’s name upon it as the founder of the organization. Many physicians, mathematicians and other science relating workers give credits to Alfred Nobel though many years passed after his death. 2. Over 186 million U.S. dollars were invested in the project. Most of the sum was collected by Alfred Nobel himself. Not exactly rich and noble in his own way he managed to have collected the sum needed to support the organization in his life time. Trying to level up with Sweden being a neighboring country that spends up to 4 percent of its annual GDP for scientific purposes Norway unfortunately fails to do it still. 3. Nobel Prize also includes in itself Nobel Peace Prize in politics. These awards are generally given to politicians who have managed to settle conflicts and save millions of people from deaths and war causing disagreements. To some politicians it is a life-time honor and purpose of their whole life. Ceremonies generally include a dinner, an announcement, medals’ presenting and congratulating those who have won them.

Food fraud often boils down to politics or semantics. Something labeled parmesan cheese may not come from Parma, for instance. But sometimes food producers try to feed us cheap fillers and other lies. In this episode of Speaking of Chemistry, Sophia Cai explains how scientists, regulators, and food makers are relying on chemistry to make sure consumers get what they pay for.
