  David Lewis is an internationally recognized research microbiologist whose work on public health and environmental issues, has been reported in numerous news articles and documentaries from TIME magazine and Reader’s Digest to National Geographic.

David Lewis, Ph.D., book, Science for Sale: How the U.S. Government Uses Powerful Corporations and Leading Universities to Support Government Policies, Silence Top Scientists, Jeopardize Our Health, and Protect Corporate Profits.

 Dr. Lewis takes us inside the US Environmental Protection Agency and how the scientists there have been silenced by corporate interests by political mandates to make all environmental policies under a "cost-benefit analysis." 

His book uncovers the dirty secrets that allow toxic sewage sludge municipal waste to be spread and sprayed on farmlands that may grow your food or food for the animals you eat. Nobody is exempt from the impacts of thousands of synthetic chemicals mixed together and condensed in the sewage sludge that may even be taken to another "Class A" level that will allow this toxic mixture to be put in your garden, your yard, the school playgrounds, parks, and all public places. 

He currently serves as Research Director for the Focus for Health Foundation, Co-Director of the National Whistleblowers Center Leadership Council, and chairs the science advisory committee for the Autism Policy Reform Coalition.
