On the one hand, in fact, important milestones have been achieved (such as vaccines against Covid) and we have moved towards new frontiers of research in the therapeutic field. On the other hand, misunderstandings and misunderstandings have arisen between the language of science and the language of civil society, often confused in the face of the so-called “information epidemic”, or the circulation of an excessive amount of information, reliable, and some not, which makes it difficult to explain most issues current correctly.
