Following a worker's compensation claim, I was falsely labeled a marijuana user by a drug test due to use of an over-the-counter medication. The company then denied me my worker's compensation and unemployment benefits, but armed with a copy of Ur-ine Trouble, I was able to clear my name and reputation and get the benefits I deserve. -- M. Botka, Electrician, College Station, Texas
I lost my job due to a positive drug test caused by my bronchitis medication. But after providing a copy of Ur-ine Trouble to my attorney, she was able to get the company to admit that the test wrongly labeled me as a drug user, and they offered me my job back. In this unjust and dismal situation, the book Ur-ine Trouble has been my ray of hope and sword of truth. -- John Kinnie, Kingman, AZ
UR-INE TROUBLE is an important book to expose the myth that employment drug testing is accurate and reliable. Having spent many years in clinical laboratory management, I can attest to the carelessness and greed that surrounds all facets of this industry. The number of criminal fraud judgments against the industry in the last decade exemplifies this widespread negligence. Dr. Holtorf accurately exposes the laboratory incompetence with compelling facts. -- Angelen Van Daele, B.S., M.T., Former Director of Marketing for several national clinical laboratories
UR-INE TROUBLE is going to blow the lid off of drug testing in this country. After reading the book, even the most devout proponents of drug testing will be forced reexamine their position on its widespread use. You need to protect yourself from falsely being labeled a drug user by the inaccuracies of drug testing. Dr. Holtorf reveals how drug testing can be unfair, inaccurate, and racially biased. -- Dean S. Edell, M.D., Nationally syndicated radio and TV medical journalist
UR-INE TROUBLE was an extremely valuable resource in my cross-examination on the accuracy of the county probation department's urine drug-screening device and techniques. The information contained in the book helped a young man maintain his freedom after he was mistakenly accused of using drugs following a routine urine screen while on probation. -- James Connor, Criminal Defense Attorney, Hudson, New York
Using well-established studies and plain English, Dr. Holtorf clearly explains in Ur-Ine Trouble how and why drug tests frequently produce unreliable results. Any person who faces drug testing for any reason should read this book from cover to cover and keep it handy in case the test turns out positive. This book is a marvelous antidote for our society's poisonous practice of judging people by the chemistry of their urine. -- Stephen R. Elias, Esq. Attorney and Associate Publisher of Nolo Press
