This week's reading.

The book has arrived from John at Number Watch:

The epidemiologists

Have they got scares for you!
By John Brignell

A quick skim and I already want to throw things at the Bogusmongers. I am not sure why the papers still print the rubbsih scares as everyone now disbelieves them don't they? Go and have a look at http://www.numberwatch.co.uk and then discuss the Government's anti-salt anti-fat anti-passive smoking anti-fun campaigns.


It's an excellent body of work. The details, especially regarding the data of the anti-salt brigade, which is absurdity driven to the extreme, is just at the right level - at least for me. I can only add my voice of recommendation about the book.....
