Slow Death By Rubber Duck: How The Toxic Chemistry Of Everyday Life Affects Our Health

Author: Rick Smith   Bruce Lourie  



'Why don't we experiment on ourselves?'

When leading environmentalists Rick Smith and Bruce Lourie decided to tell the story of pollution in our modern world by using their own bodies as laboratories, they could not have known what they were about to discover.

They ingested and inhaled a host of things that surround us all the time, from mercury-laden tuna to flame-retardant chemicals in clothes and furniture, to toxins in plastics, toys, shampoos and deodorants. The results of these experiments are both alarming and unexpected.


Slow Death by Rubber Duck exposes the extent to which we are being poisoned every day of our lives, both in our homes and our workplaces. It tells the shocking story of corporate giants who manufacture these toxins, the government officials who let it happen and the effects on people across the globe.

Funny, thought-provoking and disturbing,
Slow Death by Rubber Duck offers solutions for how we might be healthier, safer and more aware. If you are concerned about the level of toxins in your body, care about the environment and want to understand the hidden threats already in your home, you must read this book. You'll never look at a rubber duck in the same way again.
