Εικασίες για σύνδεση των εμβολίων με τον αυτισμό, απαγορεύσεις μεταλλαγμένων τροφών, η τρέλα για τις θεραπείες με βότανα: όλα αναφέρονται στον εντεινόμενο φόβο του κοινού (και συχνά την ολοκληρωτική άρνηση) της επιστήμης και της λογικής, λέει ο Michael Specter. Προειδοποιεί ότι αυτή η τάση προοιωνίζει την καταστροφή της ανθρώπινης προόδου.
