Behauptungen über Impfungen und Autismus, "Frankenfood"-Verbote, der Heilkräuter-Wahn: All das deutet auf die wachsende Angst (und oft komplette Verleugnung) der Öffentlichkeit von Wissenschaft und Vernunft, sagt Michael Specter. Er warnt, dass dieser Trend Unheil für den menschlichen Fortschritt bedeutet.
