Faith is what we need for things to turn around...
Thank you Ms. Steingraber for having the knowledge and the gusto to write this amazing work. Growing up environmentally contious and cautious about what I put in and around my body I picked up this book inquisitively hoping it would be what I was looking for. As a first time expectant mother, it was everything and much more.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
It wasn't just another how-to guide or cautionary work. This book is honest and raw, terrifying and touching. It tells the story of an extraordinary woman scientist and her journey into motherhood. She portrays the wonders and doubts of every pregnant woman and presents the real dangers to human health that seem inescapable. Her insight to the frightening world of particle pollutants and views about the importance of protecting the sacred act of breastfeeding floored me. For all mothers and those seeking a brighter future for our children, and children's children, please pick up this book. You will be ever grateful.

Must read for moms to be, and everyone else!
This book is insightful and informative without being boring drabble. It is honest and frightening, but in the way that it should be, not in a way that causes one not to continue reading the story or to fall apart in sheer panic. I read it because a friend told me I should and I have bought it now for several friends or family members because I think everyone needs to read this.Was this review helpful?
