PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Science is value-free knowledge. Scientists can not do good work if science is forced into the service of other interests in society.

Ideology -- The Soviet's and plant science, and the Nazi's and race science

Dogma -- The Young Earth Creationists and the dinosaurs

Moneyed Interests -- The tobacco companies and cancer research
