Headlines bring news of the latest health scare, with worrying predictions for where developments in science will takes us. We want and need to understand the phenomena that influence our lives, but science is often more subtle and more complicated than the headlines would suggest.;Over a diverse range of subjects, Robin Baker shows that the science we as consumers believe to be true is often an oversimplification - a convenient way of explaining complex subjects which are little understood. His investigations reach their own, startling conclusions. Could it be possible, for example, that using sun screen is actually increasing our chance of skin cancer? More and more people are taking Prozac, but does science have an easy answer to explain why? We all know the arguments in favour of conservation, but could there be strong biological arguements against it?
