Book Review of
“Doubt is Their Product: How Industry’s
Assault on Science Threatens Your Health”

Doubt is Their Product is an indictment of the way big business has ignored, suppressed or distorted vital scientific evidence to the detriment of the public’s health. This sabotaging of science is now a routine part of American politics and a common corporate strategy. It was a tactic started by the tobacco industry, which worked for years and now is being used by the Pharmaceutical and Chemical industries. They bombard the courts and regulatory agencies with a barrage of dubious scientific information to create doubt about the toxicity of their various products to delay regulation. Unfortunately it has nearly always worked, at least for a time.
