With a PhD. in genetics and several years as a researcher in that field, Dr. Michael Andregg decided that war was a larger public health hazard than the rare diseases he was studying and turned his attention to studies in peace and justice. As a professor at the University of St. Thomas, he has followed this path for the past 25 years.
Through the non-profit Ground Zero Minnesota he led production of 57 educational videos on this subject and sponsored about 5000 programs for young scholars in the upper Midwest. He has published numerous articles and his book, "On the Causes of War," which won a national peace writing award in 1999.
Dr. Andregg believes the "gorilla in the room" of Middle East peace is WMD, including nuclear, and there is one nuclear nation in the Middle East: Israel. That gorilla has an equally ominous twin: millions of teenage males maturing into desperate circumstances.
Dr. Andregg's self-defined mission at all times is "education for informed democracy and human survival."
