This is the result of painstaking research into why children get sick, are born with defects, get ADHD, asthma, cancers, etc, often in clusters, and are much much sicker with these new diseases than in pre-industrial society.
It brings reputable science to bear on parents' gut feelings that it is the nearby power station or the chemical plant or the weedkiller sprays that have something to do with their child's illness and explains how the chemical or nuclear industry in America ( and probably everywhere else, too) goes about lobbying governments, suborning scientists, getting their own people on Government Boards that regulate emmissions, air and water quality, amounts of chemicals allowed, etc. and getting laws pass that make it ever more difficult to protest, question, confront or get compensation, building on the guidelines practised by the tobacco industry.
Although full of horrifying details and lots of scientific information, it reads like a detective novel and ends on very positive ways in which ordinary people can try to safeguard the environment that at present often threatens their babies, often in the womb. Us based but good hints for other countries, too.

so sad, it takes manyhours to plod through the research. I'm glad someone wrote it all down.
but so sad for our society.

This is a must read for those piecing together 'why today's kids are so sick'….

This book delves into an important story that the public should make itself aware of and the Shabecoffs do an admirable job.
