Living in a Contaminated World: Are chemical advances making us sicker, fatter, and less intelligent?

The promise of chemicals designed to act as pesticides, solvents, fungicides, and plastics has played out as improvements in many aspects of life. They protect our grapes from fungus, our leafy greens from pests, our children from fire ants and flammable pajamas. They lubricate our factories, refineries and power plants. Thousands of chemicals are now found in the environment — and also in our bodies. Research shows that exposure to these compounds may alter our very genetic makeup, making us sicker, fatter, and less intelligent. This exposure also affects our descendants. Andrea Gore and David Crews discuss how environmental exposures to commonly used chemicals cause irreversible biological changes and increased disease states in us, our children, our grandchildren and beyond.
