Beschreibung

When Speaker Newt Gingrich greeted Dr. David Lewis in his office overlooking the National Mall, he looked at Dr. Lewis and said: You know youre going to be fired for this, dont you? I know, Dr. Lewis replied, I just hope to stay out of prison. Gingrich had just read Dr. Lewiss commentary in Nature, titled EPA Science: Casualty of Election Politics. Three years later, and thirty years after Dr. Lewis began working at EPA, he was back in Washington to receive a Science Achievement Award from Administrator Carol Browner for his second article in Nature. By then, EPA had transferred Dr. Lewis to the University of Georgia to await terminationthe Agencys only scientist to ever be lead author on papers published in Nature and Lancet.The government hires scientists to support its policies, industry hires them to support its business, and universities hire them to bring in grants that are handed out to support government policies and industry practices. Organizations dealing with scientific integrity are designed only to weed out those who commit fraud behind the backs of the institutions where they work. The greatest threat of all is the purposeful corruption of the scientific enterprise by the institutions themselves. The science they create is often only an illusion, designed to deceive, and the scientists they destroy to protect that illusion are often our best. This book is about both, beginning with Dr. Lewiss experience, and ending with the story of Dr. Andrew Wakefield.

Autorentext

David L. Lewis, PhD, changed dentistry to a heat-sterilization standard worldwide in 1992 when his research at the University of Georgia showed that germicides recommended by the CDC and FDA could not prevent common dental devices from causing sporadic cases of HIV infection. As a veteran microbiologist in EPA's Office of Research & Development, his medical and environmental research and commentaries on the politics of science have been covered in news articles and documentaries by every major media outlet, from Reader's Digest to National Geographic.
