Our precarious habitat by Melvin A Benarde( Book )

30 editions published between 1970 and 2008 in English and held by 1,808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book addresses hot-button issues like global warning, nuclear energy, electromagnetic fields, and alternative health practices. It also provides risk assessment tools and techniques to help readers examine issues." "This book is a great resource for environmental science professionals and a thought-provoking textbook for students in medicine and public health, the social sciences, earth science, and other areas. Most of all, it's a reference for concerned officials and citizens who want a clear, unbiased perspective on environmental issues in order to separate scientific fact from alarmist propaganda"--Jacket
The chemicals we eat by Melvin A Benarde( Book )

16 editions published between 1971 and 1979 in English and Korean and held by 969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If public paranoia continues, it is only a matter of time before apple pie itself comes under the toxicologist's scrutiny. I do not mean to sound frivolous or to imply that I consider chemicals in foods a trivial problem. I do not. On the other hand, I am not worried by their presence -- and neither should you be, and I shall attempt to explain why. - p. 14-15

You've been had! : how the media and environmentalists turned Americans into a nation of hypochondriacs by Melvin A Benarde( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With all of the negative media about environmental threats over the last four decades, is it any wonder that most people believe disaster is just around the corner? But despite what the media would lead us to believe, annual reports from the Surgeons General show that Americans are the healthiest they have ever been, are becoming healthier, and are, in fact, the healthiest people on the planet. In You've Been Had! Melvin Benarde aims to set the record straight and to counteract the culture of complaint and worry with an unbiased account of the scientific facts - facts that suggest we are anxious and frightened about the wrong things. Contrary to media reports, he argues, the environmental factors that most adversely affect our health are those that are within our power to alter, such as smoking, diet, drugs, stress, guns, speed, and our sedentary lifestyle."--Jacket

Melvin Benarde papers by Melvin A Benarde( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Melvin Benarde papers collection is a set of typescript drafts of books written and edited by Melvin Benarde. The typescripts are annotated, some heavily and some with copy edits and instructions to typesetters. Titles include Race against famine, Our precarious habitat, Disinfection, and The chemicals we eat. The collection is arranged in four series, one containing each of the aforementioned four titles, in order of each title's publishing date. Series I comprises all materials relating to Race against famine (published 1968 June 01). It includes an author-corrected setting copy of the book as well as an ad for the book from The New York Times book review (located in Box 1 Folder 2). Race against famine is about solving the problem of world hunger and malnutrition. Benarde proposes solutions such as increasing agricultural output and low-cost, high-protein food production. Series II includes an author-corrected setting copy of Our precarious habitat (published in 1970). Benarde wrote Our precarious habitat to inform the general public about how science and technology affect daily life and to teach laypeople how to evaluate environmental issues in a non-heated and objective manner. The book was also intended for use in college classrooms and directed at students with limited or no science backgrounds. Some of the topics covered are: the ecology of health and disease; chemicals in our foods; pesticides; waste-disposal systems; air, water, and noise pollution; radiation; population; and the political aspects of pollution. Series III contains an author-corrected setting copy of Disinfection (published in 1970). Disinfection, edited by Benarde, is a compilation of works by several scholars on the topic of fighting microbial disease. According to Benarde's introduction to Disinfection, its goal is "to advance in a more creative way the field of disinfection research." Authors represented in this volume include: Paul M. Borick, Carl W. Bruch, Mary K. Bruch, L. F. L. Clegg, Velvl W. Greene, Klaus Grossgebauer, W. B. Hugo, A. E. Humphrey, Bernard W. Koft, John Liston, A. L. Linewaver, Shigeshi Nagasawa, Haruki Nishimura, D. J. Olivant, Rollin E. Pepper, A Prokop, D. A. Shapton, Toshio Tsuchiya, and V. I. Vashkov. Series IV is made up of four versions of The chemicals we eat: a first draft (box 2 folders 5-6), an author-corrected typescript (box 3 folders 1-2), a typesetting copy (box 3 folders 3-6), and a Xerox copy (box 3 folders 7-8). In The chemicals we eat, Benarde itemizes and discusses both natural chemicals and chemical additives in our food supply and assesses their necessity, effectiveness, and any potential benefits or dangers they might pose. In general, Benarde expresses approval of the use of chemical additives in food and disapproval of the mass hysteria surrounding the effects of chemical additives. The collection could be useful to those researching Benarde's writing methodology and attitudes about environmental and health sciences in the 1960s and 1970s or those interested in pedagogy relating to those fields
