Title

Why poison ourselves?: A precautionary approach to synthetic chemicals

Author

McGinn, Anne Platt

Description

Most synthetics probably pose little risk for the environment or human health, but some are poisonous even in minute quantities. Recent research on certain highly toxic synthetics has linked them to serious human health effects in the parts per trillion range. Ecological research is uncovering extensive wildlife damage as well.
