Abstract:

"Everyday, tons of chemicals are released into the environment, without ever knowing how toxic they are in the long term to living organisms. Moreover, the majority of the 100,000 molecules developed since World War II which are used in daily products have never been tested. Some of them found their way into our bodies and into fetuses. Up to 247 toxic substances have been found in new-borns. We are today bequeathing our toxic load to our children along with our DNA. In a hard-hitting investigation, carried out with intelligence and humor, director, Carole Poliquin, has her own blood tested and explores the links between those toxic substances and some rising health problems such as cancer, allergies, hyperactivity and infertility. Her findings are disturbing and strongly challenge our way of life"--Container
