Описание на книгата Откъс от книгата За автора

In this book 10 expert scientific contributors analyse key environment and health issues being discussed by the WHO. The book challenges the conventional wisdom that human health problems (cancer, disease and even death) are being caused and exacerbated by modern industrial society. The book offers an overview by scientific experts of the available scientific evidence concerning the impact of pesticides, dioxin, nitrates, radiation, endocrine disruptors, global warming and the precautionary principle on human health. The contributors show that many environment and health risks have been exaggerated, to the detriment of scientific research and public policy. Environmental scare stories in the media have been unbalanced and thus are psychologically and economically detrimental to the average person. When scare stories are used to influence government regulations, the result is frequently economic harm, a lack of prioritisation with few or no benefits for people.
