Founded in 1978, the American Council on Science and Health (ACSH) is an education consortium that is primarily concerned with "issues related to food, nutrition, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, lifestyle, the environment and health". Along with this broad thematic focus, the ACSH is also interested in providing a "sound scientific basis" for various public policies through their research programs. First-time visitors will want to start by looking through some of their recent reports, which include "Irradiated Foods" and "A Primer on Dental Care". After considering some of these works, visitors can click on through sections such as "Health Issues", "Publications", and "Events". One rather intriguing area of the site is titled "Facts and Fears". Edited by the ACSH's Director of Publications, Todd Seavey, this publication reports on a wide range of public health topics, including tobaccos use by high-profile media celebrities and vaccine litigation.
