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.

Even our unborn children are affected.

He investigates the chemicals in our household products, toys, food, drinks, etc., finding that they are scarily unregulated and untested.
Hagbard Celine
The subject matter of this film is highly disturbing, and yet it's full of hope.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This documentary only earned 3 stars because while the maker asks us all to make a difference, I couldn't get past the fact that both of his children featured prominently throughout the film were wearing disposable diapers. The focus of how our (humanity as a group) lives are overtaken by a plethora of unknown and untested chemicals via our food delivery systems and the chemicals we come in contact within our homes, left a lot unexamined.

Is there a problem? Absolutely, there is, when so many of the things we in the U.S. continue to produce products that are banned by many other countries because of the known carcinogenic properties that they embody. Yet, I got the impression that the filmmaker really didn't want to alarm us. Why spend extensive time asking important questions then lobbing softballs at the solutions?

It is known that many children are now being born with serious chemical sensitivities and the incidence of childhood cancer is increasing not decreasing. The sterility in both men and women today is also alarming and the number of couples seeking treatment for infertility is now a booming industry. Can we really shrug our shoulders at the possible causes? I was saddened by the motivation behind this story, the miscarriages suffered by this couple and their search for answers; yet, I felt for the most part, I felt like I was watching their home movies because the prominence given to their two toddlers (yes, they are adorable).

Unfortunately, I didn't learn anything new, so if you have a working knowledge of the poisonous pesticides being used on plants and the lack of corporate accountability in our system, then this isn't required watching. I would recommend Food, Inc., Food Matters, Ingredients, The Gerson Miracle or The World According to Monsanto.
