EPA Microbiologist Dr. David Lewis Wrote the Book on Research Misconduct - Then Throws the Book at Brian Deer
On April 29, Teri Arranga conducted a gripping interview with Dr. David Lewis on her radio show, Autism One: A Conversation of Hope. The show opened with Dr. Lewis speaking about his soon-to-be-released book, Science for Sale.
Dr. Lewis was the only EPA scientist to ever be lead author of articles published in Nature and Lancet. In 2008 and 2011, Nature reported on a lawsuit he filed against EPA scientists for covering up problems with chemicals in organic fertilizers (biosolids) linked to autism, and his investigations into fraud charges leveled against Dr. Andrew Wakefield. Listen to Dr. Lewis' interview or read the transcript of it below to learn what he discovered while pouring through the documents related to the baseless charges against Dr. Wakefield. Dr. Lewis is a renowned environmental scientist who is sponsored by Focus Autism.
Dr. Lewis will be giving a presentation about his new book Science for Sale: How the US Government Uses Powerful Corporations and Leading Universities to Support Government Policies, Silence Top Scientists, Jeopardize Our Health, and Protect Corporate Profits at the AutismOne Conference in Chicago, Friday, May 23 at 1 pm CT.
