Description - Generations at Risk by Ted Schettler

Presents evidence that human exposure to some toxic chemicals can have lifelong and even intergenerational effects on human reproduction and development. The result of a collaboration involving public health professionals, physicians, environmental educators and policy advocates, this book examines how scientific, social, economic and political systems may fail to protect people from environmental and occupational toxicants. The authors focus on classes of chemicals that people may be exposed to at work, at home or in their communities. These include toxic metals, organic solvents, pesticides and endocrine disruptors. In addition to providing scientific information with which to assess the health risks of many chemicals, the book provides a guide to late-1990s regulatory system and resources for action.
