Format: Paperback
From the Industrial revolution and onward, the world has become an environment that is overflowing with dangerous toxins. Mass manufacturing has resulted in thousands of chemical pollutants being released in the atmosphere, water, and soil. As well, there has been a widespread increase of chemicals being added to almost every type of food and retail product. With this overwhelming chemical exposure, there has been an increase in research and studies showing the life threatening impacts on our health and well being. In her book, `Our Chemical Lives and The Hijacking of our DNA,' author Catherine J Frompovich, delves into the effects of a chemical laden world on the body at a cellular level.

Frompovich presents an in-depth analysis supported by research on how chemicals enter the body and penetrate cellular nuclei causing permanent damage and eventual death of the cell resulting in DNA mutations. These mutations have evolved to change our cellular structure making us susceptible to a wide range of diseases.

Frompovich describes how chemicals break down the body's cells causing cellular mutation. She details how such chemicals as pesticides, herbicides, man-made preservatives and additives, and much more, result in such conditions as obesity, increased neurological disorders, respiratory disease, heart disease, cancer, birth defects, endocrine disruption, immune system damage...etc. The author goes into great detail educating the reader about the effects of very powerful and toxic chemicals on our body systems. One important revelation from the book is that many of today's diseases can be linked to our chemically driven lifestyles. This may mean that we can drastically reduce many illnesses by reducing chemical exposure in our everyday lives.

A profoundly eye-opening narrative...not something to be read in one sitting, but something to be read slowly and digested. This is a wake up call if ever there was one to the slow destruction of our bodies. If you have ever considered going "organic", this will be the determiner.
