Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Generations at Risk presents compelling evidence that human exposure to some toxic chemicals can have lifelong and even intergenerational effects on human reproduction and development. The result of a collaboration involving public health professionals, physicians, environmental educators, and policy advocates, this book examines how scientific, social, economic, and political systems may fail to protect us from environmental and occupational toxicants. It is an important sourcebook for those concerned about their own health and that of their loved ones, as well as for medical and public health workers, community activists, policymakers, and industrial decision makers.

Review:

"This book is not a polemic but an attempt to come to grips with the increasing toxification of the biosphere. There are topics of interest for everyone, from the professional risk assessor to the layperson who needs to know where to turn for help." Charles Schweighauser, Boston Book Review
