    An exploration into the everyday lives of the toxins that surround us.Just how healthy are we trying to live We can make small adjustments in our lives Eat fruits and vegetables Use organic materials in our cleaning supplies, our children s toys, and even our furniture Exercise But what good does that do us when, no matter what we do, toxins permeate nearly everything in our lives McKay Jenkins offers an exploratory look at just what exactly it is that lives among us His list is exhausting From the stuff in our tap water to the nauseating smells of the big box store, it s incredible how much we have come to rely on synthetic plastics and flame retardants Is it really saving us Or are we just making ourselves sicker It s important to note that the complexities are much deeper than what Jenkins presents in the book, but at the same time it s a step forward in acknowledging what is happening in our society and steps one person can take to make a change It s not easy But if you want an eye opening experience that will, at the very least, make you question your next purchase, then take a look at this.

    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.

    Not the first book I ve read in the threats that the chemical industry has made on our bodies, our environment, our children, our world It s a summary of all the crap that surrounds us that will probably kill us slowly However, the title is misleading My Quest to Survive in a Toxic World implies that there is in the book on how to minimize the effects of all of these chemicals, yet that is relegated to a epilogue at the very end of the book and a few websites I can visit for safer products I know it s not the author s fault, but I feel helpless after reading this book.

    This book is simultaneously fascinating and horrifying After reading it, I felt like I walked away with an infinite amount of new information I m just not certain I like knowing what I know This book made me rethink so many things Every time I walk into a store with scented candles or body products, I breathe in deeply and take in the aromas After learning about the chemicals contained within these products, I had to shudder When I feel my plushy carpet under my toes,I feel comfort but now knowing what resides within it, I m not so sure This book explores so many types of contaminations that most people are unaware of in their daily lives It ll give you pause for sure.

    Knowledge is power and everyone should read this book It is extremely well written and it isn t designed to scare people to the point where they have an aggressive reaction to the information but just enough to motivate changes to a bunch of little things in their day to day lives We are all entitled to know which chemicals we come in contact with and this book does a good job of categorizing different aspects of our life where we encounter germs in an easy to read format.

    Wow, I knew we were subjected to toxins and chemicals in our daily environment, but I had no clue just how badly exposed we are The chapters that deal with plastics, primarily phthalates and BP A are scary as hell At the end of the book there are some suggestions for reducing your risk, but absolutely nothing in regards to detoxing and trying to rid your bodily tissues of toxic residue I think the author could have done a better job here I am left wondering what I should do now My wife and I would love to have a new car But that new car smell is all the synthetic materials out gassing chemicals that could be carcinogenic to the human body While exposure to said smells may not be dangerous by themselves they have a cumulative effect within the human body when added in with other exposures Some common things that all add up over time Every piece of furniture including your mattress and many of your clothes are covered in flame retardants most are carcinogenic Opened paint cans, turpentine, cleaning solvents, glues, resins all sitting in your basement or garage are all out gassing Oh, lets not forget pesticide and herbicide residues on our produce Over years, these things all accumulate About the only way to know how contaminated you are is to undergo what is called a body burden study where your blood and tissues are tested for a variety of toxins and toxic accumulations However this costs thousands of dollars Definitely not a blip on my radar screen anytime soon So, where does that leave us Let s assume we are contaminated There are some useful tips on reducing your exposure in your home by changing your buying habits and going to natural in your home with your furniture as well as other changes But the burning question is there any way to purge myself of the most onerous toxins such as BP A and phthalates This is the biggest failure of this book I feel like we are all on the road to a cancerous end If I do make all the suggested changes how much of a difference will it really make How much is enough I feel like if I constantly live my life in fear of say formaldehyde or plastics exposure, I will only be attracting of what I don t want into my life I look forward to hearing others take on this book PLEASE leave me a comment if you have anything meaningful to add to the discussion or ideas on ridding my tissues of plastic residues.

    This book is categorized under science, medicine and environmental studies, but I think a horror categorization would be just as apt Seriously it reveals the type of disturbing things that will make you want to curl up under your bed and hide Jenkins refers to actual product ingredient lists, scientific studies and experts to paint a picture of how overwhelmingly toxic our world has become Even the most innocuous things, from face lotion to baby pajamas to foam seating, contain toxins that our bodies are absorbing and accumulating, leading to cancer, neurological issues and birth defects Even worse, no one can escape contamination Body burden studies have shown that people who purposefully lead healthy, organic lifestyles, and people who live in remote areas that you wouldn t expect to be tainted by chemicals, still have alarmingly high levels of toxins in their bodies So what can we do This books provides a starting point for figuring out what harmful products to get rid of, what safe products to buy, and how to lessen exposure On a bigger scale, the public needs to push the government to impose stringent regulations on the industry, and push it to support efforts to find safe alternatives to toxic chemicals Would definitely recommend reading this book Toxins are a problem that affects everyone The world won t be fixed overnight, but you can become knowledgeable and start taking control of your own health today.

    ContamiNation opened my eyes and made me think Just buying organic food at the grocery store isn t going to eliminate our exposure and probably won t even make a significant change in our exposure I had never given a lot of thought to things like what my neighbor uses on his lawn, the exhaust from the cars that drive by my home when my windows or open or the chemicals I m exposed to when I walk through my local mass retailer.ContamiNation takes a look at where we re exposed to toxic chemicals and some things that we can do to reduce our exposure It also gives a section of resources at the back of the book that will give you ideas of where to go for information If you re dealing with chemical sensitivity or you re concerned about your exposure, I highly recommend you read ContamiNation.

    Thank you NetGalley and Penguin Group for my receiving this book in exchange for an honest review This is a science type book, but don t let that scare you away You will be scared, and mortified, though I ve long thought that the increase in our illnesses, cancers, etc are likely related to the chemicals, etc now in our products We clamor for cheaper prices, but we re paying the price in our health The book is easy to read, and understand, and I highly recommend it.
