I originally bought this book 10 years ago and have given copies as presents several times. This is a brilliant critique of the impact of chemical pollution on the ecostructure and the lives of people in the United States. Drawing heavily on Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring" it is a heartfelt plea for a more enlightened approach to a safer science. Some of the figures she quotes are so extraordinary that you have to read them twice.Few people now dispute the link between environmental pollution and the increasing frequency of cancers in humans and animals, and this book, originally published in 1997 is an important contribution. At the same time it is a deeply personal account of the author's survival from bladder cancer and her search as a biologist for the causes of the current cancer pandemic. This book will make you cry, it will probably make you very angry and - as the author suggests - it may make you into a campaigner.
