Editorial Reviews

This is a documentary about chemicals in our bodies ... and how they got there. On average, all of us have over 232 industrial chemicals floating around in our bodies. Director Ed Brown delves into this issue from twelve distinct angles to provide audiences with information that they may not be aware of. From health care to regulations, he explores every angle to provide others with the big picture so people can make their own minds to determine what is acceptable in their own lives.

This film is playing at a variety of organizations and universities and I was lucky enough to see it. It is a huge eye-opener, so I did some digging and pulled information from wherever I could to explain best what Unacceptable Levels is all about.

Over 80,000 chemicals flow through our system of commerce, and many are going straight into our bodies. Even our unborn children are affected. Due to this constant exposure, we have approximately 200 synthetic industrial chemicals interacting with our cells every single day. Until recently, modern science really didn’t understand what that could mean for all of us in the long run, but that is now changing.

Unacceptable Levels examines the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940s through the eyes of affable filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. To create this documentary, Brown traveled extensively to find and interview top minds in the fields of science, advocacy, and law. Weaving their testimonies into a compelling narrative, he presents us with the story of how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are, and to where, if we’re not vigilant, it may take us.

"Brown embarks on a quest for answers about chemicals that could be affecting the health of his children. What he discovers affects every living creature on the planet." - Nancy Swan, Director of Children's Environmental Protection Alliance

Globally, disease rates are on the rise. Theories about the causes abound, yet the issues are complex and often muddied by the maneuvering of political and corporate interests.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Changing! May 22, 2014
Ed Brown is a regular guy who gets scared by what's in his home as he begins raising a young family. He investigates the chemicals in our household products, toys, food, drinks, etc., finding that they are scarily unregulated and untested. Ed learns fast, as we the viewers do in this fact packed but emotionally charged film. A plethora of experts helps us understand what some of the causes of allergies, asthma, ADHD, autism, cancer and other modern day scourges may be ... and no surprises for guessing that toxins that we've allowed into our lives may be the culprits. It will change the way you live. Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's all about the kids June 1, 2014
By Sue
I can't recommend this film enough. Not only is it chock full of eye-opening information gathered in interviews with highly articulate experts, but it manages to be entertaining and even charming. Shots of talking heads are interspersed with images of the day to day life of Ed Brown's kids as they discover their (worrisomely toxic) everyday world. This repeated focus on these 2 little ones served as a constant reminder to me that it's all about our kids. The subject matter of this film is highly disturbing, and yet it's full of hope.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eye Opening June 18, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I found this to be an eye opening documentary. The director hopes people will pick one thing to investigate further. He has inspired me to do just that. I have encouraged my friends to watch this video. It covers a broad spectrum of issues and serves as an introduction to the many challenges we face in our country.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad July 9, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This documentary addressed a number of issues I was made previously aware of in other documentaries along these lines. I would recommend it for someone who does not really keep up with environmental issues, and really does not want all the gory details either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Educate yourself June 20, 2014

Everyone should watch this. Educate yourself. We are poisoning ourselves every day and we don't even know it just buy our food and everyday things around us

Wow- so good! I honestly wasn't expecting such a genuine perspective. The director and featured experts are clearly well rounded and highly educated. I was veritably starstruck by the names and faces I watch deliver the inarguable case against toxic exposure. Certainly, the wool will be lifted from the viewers' eyes upon watching this brilliant exposè. I am very pleased I purchased this rather than even just renting. Either way, it is A MUST SEE, especially if you or someone you know has chronic health problems,cancer, learning disorders or other forms of cognitive, emotional, or behavioral issues, etc....or if you or someone you know has or plans to have kids someday. Thank-you Ed, for your time, energy, and devotion to helping the truth come out. Let's all do something about it!

It is always great to see an independent get interested in a subject and do some real digging and reporting on it and this is what this documentary is all about. It exposes the risks that are not widely known about many products and chemicals that many of us come into contact and ingest daily. It also exposes the risk, or lack thereof of regulation and warnings concerning policies and products. This is real eyeopener and should be viewed just as personal health protection and awareness of the possible effects that chemicals can have for your personal health. It also highlights how pollutants are recycled (and not in a good way) back into the food and water chain we all depend upon.
