Crop Chemophobia: Will Precaution Kill the Green Revolution?, the new book from STATS fellow Jon Entine, is “highly recommended” by the Midwest Book Review:
Pesticides and preservatives can be dangerous in excessive quality, but is the world’s growing phobia putting it at odds with the benefits they bring? “Crop Chemophobia: Will Precaution Kill the Green Revolution?” outlines the concern with modern farming about the paranoia surrounding food safety and how too much regulation of chemicals could lead to unforeseen problems in the future of the world’s food supply. Arguing for more consistent testing of pesticides and their effects on food, stating that some are banned when they pass the test clearly, “Crop Chemophobia” provides quite the insight on this major issue, highly recommended.
