More About Slow Death by Rubber Duck by Rick Smith; Bruce Lourie
 
 
 
Overview
Pollution is not only an abstract, distant problem seen in belching smokestacks and contaminated waterways; it's also personal. Some of the most dangerous pollutants come from commonplace items in our homes and workplaces--shampoos and toothpastes, carpets and children's toys.

To prove this point, leading environmentalists Rick Smith and Bruce Lourie conducted their own research by ingesting and inhaling a host of things that are part of our everyday lives. Using their own bodies as the reference point to tell the story of pollution in our modern world, they expose the miscreant corporate giants who manufacture the toxins, the weak-kneed government officials who let it happen, and the effects on people and families across the globe. This book--the testimony of their experience--exposes the extent to which we are poisoned every day of our lives.
