About American Council on Science and Health

The American Council on Science and Health was founded in 1978 by a group of scientists who had become concerned that many important public policies related to health and the environment did not have a sound scientific basis. These scientists created the organization to add reason and balance to debates about public health issues and to bring common sense views to the public. ACSH is a national, non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) consumer health education and advocacy organization based in New York City.
