    Life changing book

    After reading this book, I knew I wanted to study reproductive toxicology in graduate school. This book opened me up to a whole new world in this field.

    a boring read for the non-scientists type

    This book is overly scientific and does little to hold companies and government accountable for toxic exposure.

    For anyone concerned with our present and future health and well-being.

    This book is extremely well-researched, showing the many problems that occur because of our modern-day practices and chemicals. Problems like infertility, immune-system breakdowns, auto-immune diseases, behavioral problems, and learning disabilities, etc. can be and are triggered by these modern-day contaminates, toxins, and pollutants. It tells which ones are the most dangerous, so we can become informed citizens and speak out against them and avoid them when possible. It makes one want to take the time and effort to encourage Government to clean up the environment, strenghten pollution standards, and promote organic foods, etc.
