NATURALLY DANGEROUS: Surprising Facts About Food, Health, and the Environment.

Constantly updated Internet supplement to the popular book by James P. Collman, Professor of Chemistry, Stanford University


Every day we have to make informed decisions on a host of problems related to our health and the health of our children, the future of the environment and even the policies of our government. With so much contradictory information in the media, how can ever keep up? It seems that one would have to devote one’s entire life to sieving through papers to find what can and can not be trusted.

Fortunately, now we do not have to. “NATURALLY DANGEROUS: Surprising Facts About Food, Health, and the Environment” is a little book written by James P. Collman, a renown Professor at Stanford University and a member of the National Academy of Sciences. In a no-nonsense style targeted to someone without any science background, Collman summarizes the science behind the issues of food, health and the environment.

The book will not tell you what to do, but it does provide the reader with enough facts and background for him or her to make more informed decisions.
