9780452288393: The Hundred-Year Lie: How to Protect Yourself from the Chemicals That Are Destroying Your Health

In a devastating exposé in the tradition of Silent Spring and Fast Food Nation, investigative journalist Randall Fitzgerald warns how thousands of man-made chemicals in our food, water, medicine, and environment are making humans the most polluted species on the planet. A century ago, when Congress enacted the Pure Food and Drug Act, Americans were promised “better living through chemistry.” Fitzgerald provides overwhelming evidence to shatter this myth, and many others perpetrated by the chemical, pharmaceutical, and processed foods industries.

Consider this:
·         The average American carries a "body burden" of 700 synthetic chemicals;
·         Chemicals in tap water can cause reproductive abnormalities and hermaphroditic birth;
·         One study of lactating women found perchlorate (a toxic component of rocket fuel) in practically every mother's breast milk.

In the face of this national health crisis, Fitzgerald presents informed and practical suggestions for what we can do to turn the tide and live healthier lives.

From the Back Cover:

Human beings are fast becoming one of the most polluted species on the planet. Learn why your body has become so toxic that you would never pass an FDA inspection:

* The average American now carries a 'body burden' of 700 more synthetic chemicals, including Teflon residues, plastics, and dozens of pesticides

* A fire retardant chemical contaminates fish, pork, turkey, chicken, cheese, butter, milk, eggs and ice cream in most grocery stores.

* A 2005 study of lactating women in 18 US states found perchlorate (a toxic component of rocket fuel) in practically every mother's breast milk.

* Lab tests have found that four common food additives-aspartame,

MSG, and two coloring chemicals-interact synergistically to produce nerve damage. These additives are commonly found in junk food marketed to children.

* In the past few decades male sperm counts fell by 50 percent, women's tubal pregnancies increased by 400 percent, and girls eight years old and younger began experiencing puberty. Chemicals are redefining what is "normal".

Are we becoming a mutant species?
