From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up -By presenting varying perspectives, this collection of articles is designed to enhance critical- and evaluative-thinking skills. The questions addressed include: "Do Infectious Diseases Pose a Significant Threat to Humanity?" "What Can Be Done to Curtail the AIDS Epidemic?" "Are Vaccines Harmful?" and "How Can Food-Borne Illness Be Prevented?" Each chapter introduces an issue, and individual articles open with a descriptive annotation and a list of questions to consider while reading. A list of supplementary periodical articles is appended to each chapter. Sidebars highlight quotes, and political cartoons are scattered throughout; a compilation of organizations to contact for additional information is provided. This title is useful for reports, term papers, and debates, yet is interesting enough for general reading. All in all, an excellent resource.-Beth Jones, Shelby County High School, Shelbyville, KY
