Abstract

Public awareness of possible perils in everyday products has increased greatly. While it is possible to predict, with some accuracy, benefits to be expected from improvements and new approaches in applied science, seldom have serious efforts been made to determine adverse effects resulting from these. The question as to the more effective approach, gentle persuasion to gain voluntary compliance or strong legislation for strict regulation, has not been satisfactorily answered. Probably there never will be agreement.
