Scared to Death: How Chemophobia Threatens Public Health presents the irrational but widespread fear we have about chemicals. Published by the American Council on Science and Health, the book clearly demonstrates how far we have come from legitimate science in making public policy decisions about what affects our health. Activists hyperbole amplified by the media is interpreted by public officials and politicians as representing public concerns and clearly established scientific results are thrown out of the window. Chemical impacts on cancers, BPA, atrazine, alar are some of the examples provided. This is a 45 minute interview with author Jon Entine exploring some of those issues including the role the media play in creating irrational fear in their search for audiences.
