The book is comprehensive in its coverage and has been meticulously researched. It calls upon the latest scientific studies to support its contention that there are many hidden aspects of modern technology that can harm us and our environment.
It considers, and answers, the following fundamental questions:
-- How safe are the appliances in your home?
-- Is your work place making you ill?
-- What does processing do to the food we eat?
-- How safe is the new electronic environment?
Despite revealing much that is disagreeable and sometimes distressing about the effects of modern technology on the world around us, each chapter of Perils of Progress ends with a positive and empowering 'What You Can Do' section. In these, readers are offered practical advice on the steps they can take to protect their own and their family's health, and the condition of the environment.
The Perils of Progress ends with a thought-provoking chapter that attempts to reconcile our society's demands for the comforts and benefits technology brings with our fundamental need to protect the natural systems that sustain life on Earth.
