“Bruce Lourie and Rick Smith, authors of Slow Death by Rubber Duck: How the Toxic Chemistry of Everyday Life Affects Our Health, know a thing or two about harmful chemicals in our bodies. They are often asked the question “How do I get this stuff out of me?” They explored this in their new book, Toxin Toxout, and found that it is not always as simple as we’d like, but there are solutions to this toxic mess we’re in. In Toxin Toxout, the authors use real-life experiments (including exposure to toxic cosmetics ingredients) to illustrate how easily our bodies absorb chemicals. With a nice dose of humor, the authors give us the good news about what is in our control, the steps we can take to help our bodies remove our toxic burden, and what we can do to avoid it in the first place. Lourie and Smith investigate the truth behind sustainable cosmetics, organic foods, which detox methods actually work, how we dispose of waste (where do those chemicals go?), and the ins and outs of a greener, safer economy.”
