Doubt is Their Product: How Industry’s Assault on Science Threatens Your Health

June 20, 2008

The multimillion dollar tobacco industry has been undermining public health standards and disregarding scientific research for years. Today on Focus we'll be joined by David Michaels, author of Doubt is Their Product, to discuss how hazards posed by all kinds of toxic materials have been swept under the rug by the industries selling them, creating further confusion about the reliability of scientific research itself.

Guest: David Michaels, Ph.D., M.P.H. (Director of the Project on Scientific Knowledge and Public Policy, George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Sciences; author of Doubt is Their Product: How Industry's Assault on Science Threatens Your Health)
