Thoroughly researched, heavily documented, and compulsively readable, Science Under Siege carries a powerful message that this nation cannot afford to ignore. Here is compelling evidence that many terrors of the day have been wildly exaggerated - even fabricated - by environmental activists, politicians, the bureaucracy, and the media. Fumento proves conclusively that dioxin, video-display terminals, power lines, pesticides, and other products of modern technology are not the deadly threats to you and your family's health that you have heard, while some touted solutions to the real environmental problems, such as the fuel gasohol, are grounded not in good science but in cynical, dollar-driven politics. The result is not only an appalling diversion of the nation's funds, but also a deadly smoke screen covering the many real risks that we face in daily life. Michael Fumento's 1990 book, The Myth of Heterosexual AIDS, established him as one of the most thoughtful writers working today in the fields of business,and science. Sure to stir controversy and debate among liberals and conservatives alike, Science Under Siege is an essential view of modern technology and should be read by anyone concerned with how our national resources are allocated.
