Veterinarian's research unlocks the true source for many societal ills.

Through scientific studies, it has been discovered that man's brain is flawed as a result of the original sin in the Garden of Eden; as such, this causes man to experience difficulty with the emotion of fear, but only through Jesus Christ can this fear be controlled. In Xulon author Dr. Barry Philipp's The Fear Factor: Finding Peace in a Desperate Society (paperback, 978-1-60477-444-3), readers will study how the brain processes fear and unlock the true sources and reasons for violence, hate, racism, substance abuse, intolerance, and other societal ills. Armed with this knowledge, they will be now be able to fully comprehend and answer some baffling questions.

After witnessing many instances of violence in his childhood, the author-who is also a veterinarianÑwanted to understand why some people had difficulty living in peace. Apart from developing the concepts in his book off fear reactions observed in animals, the author cites one specific incident that motivated his research: a story told by a woman who was two years old when she was taken to the Auschwitz death camp

"How her life was affected by this experience prompted me to consider children who are born during a war," says Philipp. "I learned that children who are born during a war stand a good chance of becoming emotionally scarred with many exhibiting signs of antisocial behavior, addictions, and countless other forms of negative behavior. This is because of experiencing high levels of fear that the mind of the child cannot control. Every instance of fear has to be controlled by the thinking brain. If not, the fear will control the mind. To save our nation, we must get control of our fear, which is difficult to recognize in the adult mind, but this book reveals how this can be done."
