Summary, etc.:
"From the authors of Slow Death From Rubber Duck. Removing toxic chemicals from our bodies and homes. There are over 80,000 synthetic chemicals in commerce today, including hormone-disrupting phthalates and parabens, cancer-causing pesticides, heavy metals and air pollutants. Rick Smith and Bruce Lourie use their outrageous experiments (they and their brave volunteers are the guinea pigs) to prove how easily our bodies absorb these chemicals from the foods we eat, the air we breathe, and the products we smear on our skin -- day after day. The steps we can take for reducing our toxic burden. The truth behind organic foods, which detox methods actually work, if indoor air quality is improving, and how we dispose of waste (where do those chemicals go?). A prescription for a healthier life. BRUCE LOURIE is a leading environmental thinker, writer and speaker. RICK SMITH is a prominent Canadian author and environmentalist. They both live in Toronto"--Provided by publisher.
