About this title

Synopsis:

A critical exposť of the health consequences of everyday chemicals contends that human beings are now one of the most polluted species on the planet, linking common products to key health issues while challenging safety reports being issued by top chemical, pharmaceutical, and processed food companies. 35,000 first printing.

From the Back Cover:

Human beings are fast becoming one of the most polluted species on the planet. Learn why your body has become so toxic that you would never pass an FDA inspection:

* The average American now carries a 'body burden' of 700 more synthetic chemicals, including Teflon residues, plastics, and dozens of pesticides

* A fire retardant chemical contaminates fish, pork, turkey, chicken, cheese, butter, milk, eggs and ice cream in most grocery stores.

* A 2005 study of lactating women in 18 US states found perchlorate (a toxic component of rocket fuel) in practically every mother's breast milk.

* Lab tests have found that four common food additives-aspartame,

MSG, and two coloring chemicals-interact synergistically to produce nerve damage. These additives are commonly found in junk food marketed to children.

* In the past few decades male sperm counts fell by 50 percent, women's tubal pregnancies increased by 400 percent, and girls eight years old and younger began experiencing puberty. Chemicals are redefining what is "normal".

Are we becoming a mutant species?
