Profitability versus Public Health

The fight between corporate profit and public health has resulted in unnecessary disease and even death. Corporate Ties That Bind clearly shows how conflicts of interest, lies, distortion of facts, and the corruption of scientists affect our exposure to toxins and radiation—and the quality of our lives.

From a wide range of writers, here are groundbreaking pieces on:

  • The basis of bad science
  • Industrial influences on cancer epidemiology
  • Secret ties in asbestos
  • Hiding environmental issues
  • Downplaying radiation risk

Whether you’re concerned about how corporations have distorted the health impacts of their products or how their financial interests affect our well-being, Corporate Ties That Bind is a must-read.

A scholarly and international look at how corporations are influencing public health

In the twenty-first century, corporations have worked their way into government, and, as they grow more powerful, arguments about their involvement with public health have become increasingly black and white. With corporations at the centre of public health and environmental issues, everything chemical or technological is good, and everything natural is bad; scientists who are funded by corporations are right, and those who are independent are invariably wrong.  Common ground between the two sides in these arguments is diminishing.

Corporate Ties That Bind is a collection of essays written by influential academic scholars, activists, and epidemiologists from around the world who scrutinise the corporate reasoning, false science, and trickery of those who present the scientific messages of organisations that attack and censure independent voices.  It shows how we are bombarded with opposing messages, as producers fight to make big profits and those concerned with health try to warn society of impending toxic dangers.  Writers include Lennart Hardell MD PhD, investigative journalist Gunni Nordström and Australia’s Don Maisch, PhD.

This book addresses how the growth of corporatism is destroying liberal democracy and personal choice.  There is a battle taking place between profitability and public health, and this book provides a detailed and scholarly intervention.

    I have ordered this book from my local library. As they did not have it in stock they are purchasing it for me.That way it will be available for many others to read.

      Smart Move! That way you can pass on the message in a not-so-obvious way regarding corruption in our commercial/money-hungry world.

      What a great activism idea -asking the local library to get a book in on the health effects of wireless. I hadn’t thought of that one! They might also get dvds in. “Resonance: Beings of Frequency” would be a good dvd to get in as it would make a good introduction to the topic.
