The Rubber Duck boys are back, and after showing us all the ways
that toxins get IN our bodies, now they give us a guide for
scrubbing those toxins OUT.
Following the runaway success of their first book, 2 of Canada''s
leading environmental activists give practical and often surprising
advice for removing toxic chemicals from our bodies and homes.
There are over 80,000 synthetic chemicals in commerce today,
including hormone-disrupting phthalates and parabens,
cancer-causing pesticides, heavy metals and air pollutants. Rick
Smith and Bruce Lourie use their outrageous experiments (they and
their brave volunteers are the guinea pigs) to prove how easily our
bodies absorb these chemicals from the foods we eat, the air we
breathe, and the products we smear on our skin--day after day. Then
they give us the good news about what is in our control and the
steps we can take for reducing our toxic burden. They investigate
the truth behind organic foods, which detox methods actually work,
if indoor air quality is improving, and how we dispose of waste
(where do those chemicals go?). The result is nothing short of a
prescription for a healthier life.
