Communicating the nature and consequences of environmental and health risks is still one of the most problematic areas of public policy in Western democracies. Mad Cows and Mother's Milk outlines the crucial role of risk management in dealing with public controversies and analyses risk communication practice and malpractice to provide a set of lessons for risk managers and communicators. This second edition adds new case studies on mad cow disease in North America, climate change, and genetics technologies. The first of the new case studies brings the story of the Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) outbreak in the United Kingdom in the 1980s up-to-date. Mad cow disease is still being discovered in UK herds and cases of mad cow disease have been found in twenty countries across the European continent and as far away as Japan with devastating consequences for the food industry. BSE has now been discovered on the North American continent in two cows born in Canada. The original cause of these two new cases is almost certainly importation of infected cattle, cattle feed, or both from Britain. Canadian government regulators and those in the cattle industry have failed to correctly assess the risks of the disease in the Canadian herd, take the precautionary measures needed to prevent the spread of disease, and communicate risks and precautionary measures to the public. The second new study deals with global warming. Not only is every aspect of this risk debate both contentious and difficult for the public to understand but the potential consequences of the risks extend all the way to global catastrophe for human civilization. A new chapter outlines the many dimensions of risk debate in the context of the need for effective and sustained dialogue by an informed public.The last new case study provides an introduction to genomic science, which is placed in the context of both the health benefits expected from genetic manipulation and some of the risk factors associated with it. One example is gene therapy, which can be used to eliminate inherited genetic diseases (i.e. cystic fibrosis), enhance human traits (i.e. athletic performance), and perhaps double life-spans. Gene technologies are relevant to some of the most fundamental human values. This new chapter suggests that we must think about the range of new risks introduced by these technologies as well as the potential benefits - and that we should do this collective thinking soon, since, given the furious pace of genomics discoveries, the possibilities will be with us sooner than we imagine.All of the case studies emphasize the need for effective communication about risks to allow effective dialogue by informed publics on health and environmental risks.

Environmental Risks and the Media explores the ways in which environmental risks, threats and hazards are represented, transformed and contested by the media. At a time when popular conceptions of the environment as a stable, natural world with which humanity interferes are being increasingly contested, the medias methods of encouraging audiences to think about environmental risks - from the BSE or 'mad cow' crisis to global climate change - are becoming more and more controversial. Examining large-scale disasters, as well as 'everyday' hazards, the contributors consider the tensions between entertainment and information in media coverage of the environment. How do the media frame 'expert', 'counter-expert' and 'lay public' definitions of environmental risk? What role do environmental pressure groups like Greenpeace or 'eco-warriors' and 'green guerrillas' play in shaping what gets covered and how? Does the media emphasis on spectacular events at the expense of issue-sensitive reporting exacerbate the public tendency to overestimate sudden and violent risks and underestimate chronic long-term ones?

A young, emphatically non-idealistic attorney finds herself in Washington, DC, working for a group of radical nutrition advocates with a passionate distaste for cow milk. Little does she suspect that their militant intolerance for lactose is a reaction to a secret global conspiracy orchestrated by the dairy industry, itself a puppet of alien masters from a distant planet orbiting the star Vega.

The world is more interested in issues surrounding agricultural and food issues than ever before. Are pesticides safe? Should we choose locally grown food? Why do some people embrace new agricultural technologies while others steadfastly defend traditional farming methods? In the debates about organic food, genetically modified organisms, and farm animal welfare, it's not always clear what the scientific studies are actually telling us. To understand these controversies and more, the authors of Agricultural and Food Controversies: What Everyone Needs to Know begin by encouraging readers to develop an understanding of how two well-educated people can form radically different opinions about food. Sometimes the disputes are scientific in nature, and sometimes they arise from conflicting ethical views. This book confronts the most controversial issues in agriculture by first explaining the principles of each side of the debate, guiding readers through the scientific literature so that they can form their own educated opinions. Questions asked: - Are organic foods truly better for your health? - Are chemical fertilizers sustainable, or are we producing cheap food at the expense of future generations? - What foods should we eat to have a smaller carbon footprint? - Does buying local food stimulate the local economy? - Why are so many farm animals raised indoors? - Should antibiotics be given to livestock? - Is genetically-modified food the key to global food security, and does it give corporations too much market power? - Is the prevalence of corn throughout the food system the result of farm subsidies? Providing a combination of research and popular opinions on both sides of the issue, Agricultural and Food Controversies: What Everyone Needs to Know allows readers to decide for themselves what they personally value and believe to be important when it comes to their food.

This work maintains that milk is a toxic substance, containing hundreds of different substances, each one having the potential to exert a powerful biological effect when taken independently of the others. Milk contains proteins and hormones, fat and cholesterol, pesticides, viruses and bacteria (including bovine leukaemia, bovine tuberculosis and cow immunodeficiency virus), all combining to produce an array of ailments in humans. It investigates possible conspiracies which may have influenced the FDA and Congress as well as the scientific and medical establishment to deliberately disguise the dangers of consuming milk and dairy products.

İngiliz yazar George Orwell, ülkemizde daha çok Bin Dokuz Yüz Seksen Dört adlı kitabıyla tanınır. Hayvan Çiftliği, onun çağdaş klasikler arasına girmiş bir diğer çok ünlü eseridir. 1940'lardaki "reel sos­yalizm"in eleştirisi olan bu roman, dünya edebiyatında yergi türünün başyapıtlarından biri olarak kabul edilir. Hayvan Çiftliği'nin başkişileri hayvanlardır. Bir çiftlikte yaşayan hayvanlar, kendilerini sömüren insanlara başkaldırıp çiftliğin yönetimini ele geçirir. Amaçları daha eşitlikçi bir topluluk oluşturmaktır. Aralarında en akıllı olan domuzlar, kısa sürede önder bir takım oluşturur; ama devrimi de yine onlar yolundan saptırır. Ne yazık ki insanlardan daha baskıcı, daha acımasız bir diktatörlük kurulmuştur artık. George Orwell, bu romanında tarihsel bir gerçeği eleştirmektedir. Romandaki önder domuzun, düpedüz Stalin'i simgelediği açıktır. Diğer kahramanlar gerçek kişileri çağrıştırmasalar da, bir diktatörlük ortamında olabilecek kişilerdir. Altbaşlığı Bir Peri Masalı olan Hayvan Çiftliği, bir masal anlatımıyla yazılmıştır; ama küçükleri eğlendirecek bir peri masalı değil, çarpıcı bir politik taşlamadır.
