Did you know that "non-toxic" usually means "never tested"? Or that many green cleaners may be good for the environment, but terrible for you? Chemist and activist Monona Rossol goes from under your sink into the halls of the powerful, tracing America's love affair with chemicals that kill, explaining how much worse the problem has gotten in the last decade. Shocking and appalling and completely reckless--that's how she describes the current prevalence of harmful chemicals in our everyday lives. Scientist have started linking our increased rates for cancer, autism, obesity, and asthma (among others) to chemical exposure and Rossol points the finger directly at the companies and executives making millions of dollars by polluting our environment and introducing toxic chemicals to our bodies. She chronicles how everyday toxins get into our bodies and accumulate over time and provides us with inspiration to make changes at the checkout lines. She also explains that Americans are not nearly as well protected by our government as we might think we are. Unlike the European Union, the United States allows chemical companies to produce toxins for use in U.S. consumer products with little-to-no oversight. While her tone is wry and entertaining, she's also well informed and her fact-filled treatise makes for absolutely terrifying reading. Includes surprising explanations about the chemicals in furniture, detergents, paints, makeup, toys, spray cleaners, ionic air purifiers, art supplies, and more Reveals how many eco-friendly products are good for the environment but bad for "your" health Exposes the truth about government regulations, product testing, and labeling, including why terms such as "non-toxic" (which often means "never tested"), "hypoallergenic," and "FDA-approved" can be misleading Offers practical ways to reduce your exposure and protect yourself and your family
If you're alarmed by the health risks of the many hazardous chemicals we encounter at home, work, and school, don't get frightened, get informed. Read "Pick Your Poison" to learn the facts and find out what you can do about the daily onslaught of toxins that are making lab rats of us all.
