Risk Versus Risk by John D. Graham

Book Description

We confront these stories nearly every day: a drug hailed as a breakthrough treatment actually causes harmful side effects; controls implemented to reduce air pollution are shown to generate hazardous solid waste; bans on dangerous chemicals result in the introduction of even more risky substitutes. The authors marshal a set of case studies which demonstrate that all too often our nation's campaign to reduce risks to our health and the environment is at war with itself.
