On both sides of the Atlantic a battle is raging between starkly opposed views of what science tells us about risks to our health emanating from our surroundings, including our food, water, and the wider environment.

This battle often pits advocates, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), politicians, and partisan scientists, who have little ability or inclination to evaluate the evidence on its merits, against scientists and regulators who confine themselves to evaluating the evidence but are typically characterized as corrupt apologists for industry. Unfortunately, confining oneself to the scientific issues simply does not have the same impact in the public arena as holding up the specter of an imminent threat to our well-being, and the less sensationalist party in this lop-sided contest is often left to tear its hair out in frustration.
