"Our Toxic World; A Wake Up Call" all about it.

  • Written by a doctor certified in environmental medicine, pediatrics and allergies, this book will give you insight into some of the scary chemical pollutants we're breathing, eating and absorbing every day. Some interesting notes from the book:

    *There are over 80, 000 chemicals in use the U.S., and only 10% have even been partially evaluated for safety.

    *Chemical sensitivity is now believed to affect some 74 million Americans

    *In some cases the effects from chemicals on the body been shown to produce symptoms misinterpreted as Attention Deficit Disorder, hyperactivity, aggression, sluggishness, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and even Bi-Polar disorder.

    Yikes. Air purifier anyone....
