Denying to the Grave

Why We Ignore the Facts that Will Save Us

Sara E. Gorman and Jack M. Gorman

  • Presents an intriguing new theory of health science denial-and why we ignore proven scientific evidence and put ourselves at risk
  • Discusses current and controversial issues related to health, such as gun control and ownership, child vaccines, climate change and nuclear power, GMO's and nutrition, and many more
  • Looks at why we worry about low-risk events, such as contracting Ebola, but hardly worry about high-risk events, such as being in an automobile accident
