Toxique ?
Santé et environnement : de l'alerte à la décision
Francelyne Marano, Robert Barouki, Denis Zmirou

Cancers, obesity, asthma, allergies, neuro-degenerative diseases (e.g. Parkinson’s), cardio-vascular and metabolic issues (Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure) and more. In what way can the significant progression in these pathologies and the transformations to our environment, due in particular to the industrial revolution and to urbanization, be connected?

In our daily lives, we are now constantly exposed to blends of potentially toxic substances (pesticides, PCB, asbestos, endocrine disruptors, nano-particles and more). What impact do they have on our bodies? Can we protect ourselves from them? And to what extent are the dangers of electro-magnetic waves real?

It is essential to have answers to these questions, both personally and in terms of public policy. Some of the mechanisms have now been scientifically proven, and this information should prompt governments to legislate; others (like cell phones, for example) are still being studied: the decision depends on risk management and the precaution principle, which isn’t always easy to defend in the face of some industrial or pharmaceutical lobbies.

An up-to-date book, coming out immediately after the PNSE3 (2014-2019) was announced.

A book that gives straight-forward answers to the questions raised by our ever-increasing exposure to numerous chemical substances.

Clear and easy-to-read, with lots of examples; scientifically reliable thanks to the 3 eminent specialists.

A popular subject in bookstores: 25,000 copies sold (source: GFK) for Le livre antitoxique (The Anti-Toxic Book), Dr Chevallier, Fayard, 2013), 21,000 for Ces maladies crées par l’homme (Man-made Diseases), Dr Belpomme, Albin Michel, 2004), 21,000 pour Notre poison quotidien (Our Daily Poison), M.-M. Robin, La Découverte, 2011).
