The book: Agnotology:The Making & Unmaking of ignorance provides valuable material about how the tobacco industry tried to undermine scientific evidence on the health impacts of smoking. It is a salutary lesson on how business counters government interventions about the advertising,tax and sale of certain dangerous products. We are now facing a backlash from the sugar industry as government faces the issue of reducing consumption of sugary products.
