Do away with Risk Assessment
One of the major problems in the scientific community is the application of Risk Assessment to the decision making process of what is good for mankind. Too many decisions are based upon what is known as the LDL (Lethal Dose Limit) when bringing products to market.
Most of our environmental problems and nearly all of our medical and pharmacological problems are the result of deciding whether the profit of a process or substance outweighs the damage and liability by the use of them. We need to stop doing things that have a negative outcome, period!
