Twenty-five years in the Environmental Protection Agency convinced E.G. Vallianatos that it was more accurately described as a polluters' protection agency. Citing frightening specifics, he describes how the $40 billion per year chemical pesticide industries have forced the agency repeatedly to buckle under its demands, exposing everyday Americans to harmful toxins. In Poison Spring, he shows how government and academic scientists have actually smoothed the way for deadly and hugely profitable concoctions that threaten us all. A wake-up call from a former EPA insider.
