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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Excellent documentary! I loved it! The ending as quoted by the author is, real change starts with each one of us with making this world & planet safer. What we change within our lives whether our food, water, use of biodegradable products, etc., starts with that first act.
I started with organic foods not quite a year ago, revolving onward changing slowly more & more. I will forever be searching other ways I can improve my life & mans!
Its so important to become informed, discuss the environment, pollutants with your friends, family, associates & spread the knowledge. We are all in this together.

This film is informative and motivational. With the barrage of info available on toxins it is easy to feel overwhelmed; however, the filmmaker succeeded at making a film that inspires people not just scares them. A former commenter stated that the filmmaker seemed hypocritical because he urged the audience to make a difference but that his own children were featured wearing disposable diapers...The older child didn't wear diapers at all and the younger child was wearing cloth GDiapers which are a very 'green' option for those interested. This is a great film to share with anyone, but especially with new mothers and fathers!

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.
