It seems as though every week there's another food or health scare. Whether it's British beef, the MMR vaccine, or just sunshine itself, there's always somebody to tell you that you are under threat from yet another everyday activity; or that the food we eat and the medicines we take are poisoning our bodies. However, this book reveals that we are all living longer, healthier lives, while science has advanced to the stage where medicines and surgical procedures are safer and more effective than ever before. So where does the truth lie? Who can we believe? How do we know whose advice is worth listening to? "Panic Nation" examines the truth behind the headlines, drawing together the country's leading experts in their field to examine these questions.
