Junk Science Judo: Self-defence Against Health Scares and Scams (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


In 12 easy-to-understanding the author, Steve Milloy walks the reader through the modern phenomenon of "junk science", the sources of many health scares and scams that can harm the health of you and your loved ones and rob peace of mind. Junk science is the manipulation of statistics to promote special policy agendas that have nothing to do with public health and safety. It can be disseminated by special interest groups, social and political activists, businesses seeking to hurt rival companies and politicians. Unfortunately, many gullible journalists pass on the bad information, alarming the public and causing much harm. Using witty and engaging prose, Milloy set the record straight on such scares as breast implants; second-hand smoke and various bogus cancer-causing agents, from food to cell phone to Agent Orange. Milloy turns complex statistical associations into easy-to-understand guidelines for judging the veracity of healthcare scares. A funny book, which will be a tremendous resource for consumers everywhere.
