ContamiNation: My Quest to Survive in a Toxic World by Mckay Jenkins
This is a well-written and researched and important book about the toxins in our environment. From plastics, medications, pesticides and herbicides to toothpaste and shampoo, we are stewing in a chemical soup. The author not only tells us about the various chemicals found in our homes, drinking water, lawns, the products we buy and how they wind up in our bodies. The book has a helpful appendix with resources to help find better products to use and groups to contact. Most importantly, we need to demand legislation that will protect our environments and ourselves. I highly recommend this book.
