In 1992 silicone-filled breast implants were banned in America in response to concerns that they caused auto-immune and connective tissue disease. The ban triggered a torrent of litigation which proved to be unwarranted. This book reveals important differences in the way science, the law and the public regard evidence. The author maintains that, as we become ever more dependent on science and technology, dangerous misconceptions about scientific evidence are becoming an increasing danger to the public good, with consequences which extend far beyond the breast implant controversy.
