WELCOME TO TOXIN TOXOUT – A BOOK ON GETTING HARMFUL CHEMICALS OUT OF OUR BODIES AND OUR WORLD
BRUCE LOURIE / RICK SMITH

ABOUT THE BOOK

“HOW DO I GET THIS STUFF OUT OF ME?”

Bruce Lourie and Rick Smith, two of Canada’s environmental leaders, have been asked this question on an almost daily basis since the publication of their runaway international bestseller, Slow Death by Rubber Duck: How the Toxic Chemistry of Everyday Life Affects Our Health. Their answer? It’s not as simple as we’d like, and it’s not as easy as we’d hope. But it’s too important to ignore. In Toxin Toxout, Lourie and Smith give practical and often surprising advice for removing toxic chemicals from our bodies and homes. There are over 80,000 synthetic chemicals in commerce today, and the authors use their outrageous experiments (they and their brave volunteers are the guinea pigs) to prove how easily our bodies absorb these chemicals.
