This book explains how the chemicals in everyday products are killing us, and what the government is not doing about it. Did you know that "non-toxic" usually means "never tested"? Or that many green cleaners may be good for the environment, but terrible for you? The author, a chemist and activist goes from under your sink into the halls of the powerful, tracing America's love affair with chemicals that kill, explaining how much worse the problem has gotten in the last decade.
