Dodging the Toxic Bullet presents workable strategies that show how we can live longer, healthier lives by breathing clean air, eating healthy food, drinking safe water, and using non-toxic products. Author David R. Boyd provides accessible background on a range of hazards including mercury in fish, carcinogens in cleaning products, lead in toys, and lethal E. coli in ground beef. His clear directions for reducing risk include growing lots of houseplants, choosing whole foods, avoiding consumer products with strong or long-lasting smells, and using green cleaning products. Easy-to-follow advice and informative sidebars and checklists make this a must-have guide, especially for parents of infants and children.
