Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Dust we track home, steam from showers and dishwashers, and plastic wrappings for meat and cheese all send manmade hormone-disrupting chemicals into our bodies. The extent to which this exposure affects human health is unknown, but evidence suggests that it may be responsible for recent worldwide increases in health problems, including breast cancer and declining sperm counts. This accessible, extensively researched handbook gives the reader information to respond to this new reality. Berkson (bioenvironmental science, Tulane Univ.), the author of several books on natural healing, provides background on how hormones work in our bodies, discusses the known and suspected effects of hormone-disrupting chemicals, and offers practical advice on avoiding exposure and on detoxifying oneself. Charts of chemicals, a list of organizational resources, and a room-by-room tour of the potential hazards in a typical house are featured. Based on scientific studies and communications with experts in the field, this book is recommended for public and academic libraries.--Noemie Maxwell Vassilakis, Seattle Midwifery Sch.
