Abstract
This book reveals how the living of daily life creates a toxic soup inside each of us. How do these toxins make their way inside us and what impact do they have on our health? Rick Smith and Bruce Lourie, two of Canada's leading environmental activists, tackle these questions head on by experimenting upon themselves. Over a four-day period the authors ingest and inhale a host of things that surround us all every day, all of which are suspected of being toxic and posing long term health risks to humans. By revealing the pollution load in their bodies before and after the experiment this book empowers readers with some simple ideas for protecting themselves and their families, and changing things for the better.
