Contents Notes Pollution then and now -- Rubber duck wars -- The world's slipperiest substance -- The new PCBs -- Quicksilver, slow death -- Germophobia -- Risky business: 2,4D, and the sound of science -- Mothers know best -- Detox. This book--the testimony of the authors' experience--exposes the extent to which we are poisoned every day of our lives, from the simple household dust that is polluting our blood to the toxins in our urine that are created by run-of-the-mill shampoos and toothpaste. Ultimately hopeful, the book empowers readers with some simple ideas for protecting themselves and their families, and changing things for the better.
