    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    A splendid, rational and long overdue book

    It is accepted among educated, liberal-minded people that alternative medicine, organic farming, and the precautionary principle are good, and that GM crops, eco-fundamentalism globalisation and so forth are bad. None of these assumptions stands up to close scrutiny. This book subjects these topics to such scrutiny.
    Taverne is not against environmentalism - indeed, he says that he took up bicycling for ecological reasons and still prefers it for its speed, exercise and convenience. But he is well-informed, and writes well, about the way that many credos are accepted without question.
