Our precarious habitat by Melvin A Benarde( Book )

35 editions published between 1970 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,904 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book addresses hot-button issues like global warning, nuclear energy, electromagnetic fields, and alternative health practices.

The chemicals we eat by Melvin A Benarde( Book )

18 editions published between 1971 and 1979 in English and Korean and held by 925 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 405 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
Asbestos : the hazardous fiber by Melvin A Benarde( Book )

12 editions published between 1989 and 2018 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the passage of the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act, AHERA, Public Law 99-519, it was clear that great quantities of asbestos would be disturbed and would require proper management and disposal. If these were poorly done, many people would be placed at risk unnecessarily. Into such an environment, a book dealing with the many diverse facets of asbestos abatement, written by people with substantial experience, seemed reasonable and appropriate, but even more so, necessary

"Finally, a book that offers a refreshing view of the positive role germs play in our world. Germs Are Us is an attitude changer, sending anxiety and fear packing. Understanding is the key, and Germs Are Us provides that key. Consider it a guide for unlocking and revealing the myriad contributions microbes provide for our existence, wellbeing, and enjoyment. In Germs Are Us, we learn that our 10 trillion human cells and our 100 trillion microbial cells --that's not a misprint -- along with our 22,000 genes and their eight million genes, all co-mingled, create a supra-organism; a supra-human!
