Semester 1 Extra Credit Opportunity

Just in time, here is your one opportunity for extra credit this semester.

We live in a time in which governmental regulations are often criticized. Charles Norris and Alexander Gettler began their work in a time of no governmental consumer protections or laws related to worker safety.  They also lived in a day and age in which murder by poison was rampant. How did the work of Charles Norris and Alexander Gettler (as described in the Poisoner’s Handbook) lead to a improvements in product and worker safety and safer society in general?

Write 1-2 pages, the level of extra credit is based on the amount of detailed supports for your response that you are able to draw out of the Poisoner’s Handbook (up to 20 pts.)
