Overview

This book is a narrative of scientific detection that answers troubling questions, while also telling a disturbing tale of governmental neglect, corporate manipulation, and personal tenacity and courage. It is essential reading if you are among the millions of Americans who hold a cellular telephone against your head everyday, if you are beguiled by the newest wireless Internet gadgets, or if you just want to know whether government is truly looking after the public's health." "The authors also provide the most thorough presentation offered anywhere of preventive safeguards consumers can adopt right now. Their fascinating and troubling examination of the collision between science and politics, presented in an ingenious format that directs readers to alternately "Follow the Science" and "Follow the Politics," is an accessible and enlightening primer for which concerned members of the public will be deeply grateful and which policymakers will ignore at all our peril.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In 1993, when the cell phone industry's chief lobbyist hired epidemiologist and pathologist Carlo to refute claims that cell phones, which had never been subjected to premarket testing, cause cancer, no one thought he would discover otherwise. But after six years of exhaustive analysis and scrupulous peer review, the results proved, according to this report, that radiation from a cell phone's antenna can cause the formation of micronuclei red flags for cancer in the brain. Children in particular are more susceptible to the radiation than adults. Carlo reported his findings to the industry and the FDA and advocated for continued research, but both parties still maintain that cell phones are safe. Here, Carlo and syndicated columnist Schram retrace Carlo's scientific undertaking and what they cast as a sinister web of corporate greed and masterful PR "spin" that choked his efforts. Schram provides the primary narrative, with Carlo's insights and recollections scattered throughout, a format that grows repetitive. Despite the captivating story, many consumers won't want to slog through the detailed scientific explanations to get to the bottom-line safety recommendations. Journalists, policymakers and consumer advocacy groups, however, will find this no-holds-barred book extraordinarily informative as they continue investigations of the industry. Agent, Ronald L. Goldfarb. (Feb. 15) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
