People are concerned about health problems, particularly risks of cancer, and reproductive problems. Whether judged by contributions to the American Cancer Society, appropriations to the National Cancer Institute, and stories in the media, these concerns are important. At the same time, few people have even the most rudimentary idea of the nature of the risks, their magnitude, and of what can be done to lower risk. Consequently, people seem to demand simplistic solutions to these complicated, emotion-packed problems.
