toxic exposure: learning about pervasive environmental chemicals in the film The Human Experiment
I wanted to share this quick post about a new film. The Human Experiment explore how millions of chemicals surround us in our daily lives. This topic follows nicely on yesterday’s post about The Story of Cosmetics.
According to the director Dana Nachman, we face an unprecedented level of toxic exposure in our daily lives via food, water, air, and in our homes. Many scientists believe that this consistent, low-level exposure can begin to explain the increasing rates of cancer, infertility, autism, and other medical challenges we face. This film was created by Nachman, a former NBC producer, when she learned about the number of untested chemicals we are exposed to in our daily lives- and how it’s nearly impossible to avoid them.
Find the Grist article here for an interview with the director and producers: We’re all guinea pigs: Film explores effects of living among untested chemicals, and watch the trailer below.
