Toxic Beauty is the most important book of the decade. As a medical doctor, Sam Epstein clearly understands the causes of diseases such as cancer, diabetes and other inflammatory diseases through the exposure to petrochemical and synthetic toxins found in every day consumer products. This book is a transparent truth of the consumer industry. It is a must read for everyone. --Horst Rechelbacher, Founder of Aveda products
Most American women have no clue that the "rugged individual" model held up for emulation includes placing the responsibility for one's health and safety squarely on the consumer's shoulder! When it come to cosmetics, each woman is on her own in judging safety of products - with no meaningful information from the producer and no aid from government watch-dogs. The research, if done at all, can be withheld by the company. Dr. Samuel Epstein is the first to speak out on this "Toxic Beauty" product hazard, and to give women some guidelines for meaningful protective action. It is a "must read" for all those who care about public health!
