5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, Dec 24 2011
This review is from: The Hundred-Year Lie: How to Protect Yourself from the Chemicals That Are Destroying Your Health (Paperback)
This book is a must read for anyone who has concerns about the chemicals and toxins in the environment and in our bodies. This book should be a wake-up call for all of us. One of the best books I have read in years. Brilliant!

This review is from: The Hundred-Year Lie: How to Protect Yourself from the Chemicals That Are Destroying Your Health (Paperback)
This book takes a hard look at some of the toxic chemicals we have introduced into our daily lives and environment, over the past hundred years, and the impact that these chemicals can (and have) had on our health. The findings are disturbing in their significance. These impacts can be very dire indeed leading to cancers, infertility and a multitude of other issues. Indeed, in one study this book cites, 80% of hundreds of embryos sampled from healthy young women were defective.

Pretty scary stuff - these chemicals are in everything: our food, our personal care products, our clothing, packaging material, our water supply, etc. While these chemicals were thought to be present in trace amounts (thought to be too little to have an impact), research shows that these toxins interact with each other creating often unpredictable synergistic and multiplicative effects. Industry appears to be aware of the deleterious impacts on human health. Unfortunately, to fix the problem is unprofitable, and that seems to trump health.

Unfortunately, while you can watch the products you buy and use, there is very little one can do, as an individual, to protect themselves. Toxins are everywhere (in your workplace, in your cars, in your soil supply, etc) and contamination appears unavoidable.

A lot of good, scientific material on the problem. I didn't think there was enough discussion of solutions (there is a brief section on detox, etc - largely refers you to other sources). However, I'm not sure there is an easy answer/solution to these problems. This book will get you thinking and help you to become more aware of what we buy. Perhaps if more people become aware, we can start to change things for the better.

Another book I am currently reading on the subject - Slow Death by Rubber Duck (Bonus - scientists are based in Canada!).
