Factual · Powerful · Original · Iconoclastic
Thoroughly researched, heavily documented, and compusively 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.
Michael Fumento proves conclusively that dioxin, video-display terminals, power lines, pesticides, and other products are not the deadly threats to you and your family’s health that you have heard.
"Michael Fumento’s clear exposition of the way in which knowledge gained through good scientific research can be distorted and used to spread misconceptions and needless public fear should receive widespread attention."
"Fumento exposes the hoodwinking of America with wit, integrity, passion, and common sense. An important book."
"A sound critical evaluation of the excessive claims of the environmental enthusiasts."
