Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* The authors of the best-selling Slow Death by Rubber Duck (2010) return to answer the most common question raised by that book’s fans: “How do we get all these toxins out of our bodies?” In a collegial, straightforward style, Lourie and Smith quiz doctors and researchers, converse with wellness activists, visit organic stores and companies and, most interestingly, engage in a variety of experiments to track how the more than 80,000 synthetic chemicals in use today got into our bodies and what it will take to get them out. (Test results after eight hours spent in a warm car will cure you of the “new-car-smell” appeal for life.) Along the way, they drop some eye-popping statistics, such as “over 40% of kids born in the United States today will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lifetime,” and they identify which companies are pursuing cleaner products versus those who skirt regulations. Scrupulously researched and sourced with thorough chapter notes, Toxin Toxout is remarkable both for its content and appealing narrative voice. Simply put, this is a book no one in the industrialized world has the luxury of ignoring. --Colleen Mondor

Review

Scrupulously researched and sourced with thorough chapter notes, Toxin Toxout is remarkable both for its content and appealing narrative voice. Simply put, this is a book no one in the industrialized world has the luxury of ignoring. (Booklist, starred review)

A useful warning against embarking on detoxification without medical supervision. (Kirkus)

We all owe a debt of gratitude to Bruce Lourie and Rick Smith for slowly poisoning themselves for our benefit. And perhaps even more, for figuring out how to unpoison themselves. This is a fascinating book that has made me change my daily routines. (A.J. Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author of Drop Dead Healthy, My Life as an Experiment and The Know-It-All)

Ruthlessly probing and logical, Bruce Lourie and Rick Smith take the reader on a whirlwind tour of the myriad toxins that we encounter in cosmetics, water, paints, electromagnetic devices--all the things that cross our paths as we just live our lives. If you've ever wondered whether the shampoo you use might contribute to cancer risk, or whether there was any merit to all those 'detox' program ads you see, then this book will help you understand the real story. These authors have created a truly indispensable and enlightening guide to living in the twenty-first century. (William Davis, MD, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health and The Wheat Belly Cookbook)

Toxin Toxout admirably demonstrates how important our everyday product choices are--from the food we buy to the cars we choose to drive. I truly believe that you cannot achieve hormonal balance without reducing your toxin exposure and improving your internal detoxification systems. Toxin Toxout provides us with a much-needed guide on how to live--and maintain--a toxin-free lifestyle. (Dr. Natasha Turner, author of The Hormone Diet and The Supercharged Hormone Diet)

After authors Rick Smith and Bruce Lourie wrote about all of the ways that toxins get in our bodies, in their first book, Slow Death by Rubber Duck, this book, Toxin Toxout, serves a guide for scrubbing those toxins out. We all know the problems, thankfully, this book gives us answers and solutions. 

Even though Toxin Toxout proves how easily our bodies absorb harmful chemicals from the foods we eat, from the products we slather on our skin, and from the air we breathe, the pages also give us plenty of good news about what is in our daily control and the steps we can take for reducing our toxic burden. In their unique writing style, never boring, and even though at times presenting our scary reality, Smith and Lourie manage to be entertaining and engaging. They even poisoned themselves for our collective benefit - and then un-poisoned themselves, as well.

My personal hope is that every person not only reads this book, but but pays it forward, sharing with others...there's only so much we can detox on our own!

Loved "Slow Death By Rubber Duck" (the authors' first book) and greatly appreciated this follow up. It is vital to have this information out there and bring more awareness to the nature of our toxin-filled world today, and hence our toxic bodies. The authors did a great job bringing the clear message home of how important it is to choose organic food and natural personal care products, as well as minimize toxins in our home and other environments. It is an empowering book for sure!

It is a smooth, flowing read, and culminates with a great ending chapter to focus on the top ten practical solutions to keeping toxins out and helping to get them out. The detox sections could have been expanded upon in many other ways, but I understand and value the perspective it was presented from given the authors' environmental, rather than nutrition or holistic backgrounds. This therefore has to be taken into consideration if one is expecting a detailed detox section. Ultimately what the best takeaway message here was, is that there is no, one quick fix for detox....it is a LIFESTYLE based on what we choose to eat, put on our body, subject ourselves to, etc., on a daily basis.

Finally, I know this is a topic that can scare some people enough to attack it as "fear mongering" or such, but avoiding or attacking it doesn't help anyone. This is what is, we live in a toxic world that WE have all helped to create and contribute to through our daily purchasing choices. So let's not put our heads in the sand, and attack the messenger(s), rather let's use the message in a way we are ready for and make the changes in our daily lives that make most sense to us where our health and wellness is concerned.

I was referred to this book by a friend after voicing my concerns about VOC's. I haven't read their first book.

It is not an easy read. Half of the book seems to be a rehash of the first book. A quarter is exhortation to be healthier. The other quarter is actual new research they did on themselves. Specifically, one of them went into a steam room and one did chelation. They both drank lots of water.

I do not recommend this book. I bought it to learn about detoxification. But that content was only about 20-30 pages.

I received an ARC of this book- my opinions remain my own and honest.

As someone trying to cut the chemicals and toxins out of not only my life, but the lives of my children so that they may live healthier, longer, better lives - I found ToxIn ToxOut to be a wonderful and easy read. Some of the great tips you can glean from this book include sweating: use of a sauna or exercise - by sweating, you are helping your body detoxify and get rid of chemicals (like BPA and phthalates). eat organic, use eco-friendly beauty products and natural fibers (like organic cotton). While those of us that part of the chemical-free and green movement may find these to be "duh" reminders - those that have never thought to live that way, may be experiencing it for the first time and need to hear it. Plus it is always good to be reminded of things to do and other tips and tricks to minimize exposures.

Bruce and Rick continue to make the scary and complex world of toxins clear and even a little bit fun. This time they tackle the first questions that everyone wants to know, "How do I get this stuff out of my body?" Again, with a perfect combination of deep research and light humor, they cut through the hype of "detox" and lay out simple and proven actions we can all take to clean up our bodies, our homes and our world.

I've made many changes thanks to this book. I found myself skim reading some of the science stuff though. Overall I'd definitely recommend it.

This book is useful to your health and awareness throughout. Very little filler info, almost everything inside sharpens your perspective on how these companies we are used to have done their business, and you learn just what you need to be aware of.

An inspiration for all humans to do the same as these authors, this is what will turn the tides,
instead of Sunday football, imagine 10 people for 1 hour researching and collaborating what they can,
using a combination of internet, book, personal, and lab results to dictate the actual truth.

We can create paradise, and this book helps the first step, our bodies and environment.
