Editorial Reviews

Gary Null
“Dr. Samuel Epstein, one of our most insightful and authoritative voices on avoidable causes of cancer, has teamed up with health writer Beth Leibson to once again present persuasive and well-documented evidence on the hidden health risks of everyday consumer products. . . . As we sit back and witness food allergies,
