"A gracefully written primer on how markets can be harnessed to manage the risks of chemicals."
—Prof. John Graham, Harvard Center for Risk Analysis
"For the first time, this book makes available an unblinking scientific assessment of the impact of chemicals, and chemical policies, on human health. Technically sophisticated, yet argued in language accessible to the layman, this book will fundamentally redirect the policy debate. It may even change the way you think."
—Prof. Michael C. Munger, Duke University
"Overinterpretation of laboratory and epidemiologic studies of cancer causation can make cancer-prevention regulations inefficient and ineffective. Similarly, it can lead to unjust resolution of cancer-related toxic torts. In this book VanDoren explains how these difficulties arise and gives valuable insight into how they can be reduced or eliminated by market-driven choices of individuals and companies."
—Prof. Philip Cole, University of Alabama, School of Public Health
