Our Stolen Future: How We Are Threatening Our Fertility, Intelligence and Survival.
By Theo Colborn, Dianne Dumanoski and John Peterson Myers
.a book about the health and environmental threats created by man-made chemical contaminants that intefere with hormones in humans and wildlife.
Endocrine disrupting chemicals alter development of the fetus in the womb by interfering with the natural hormonal signals directing fetal growth. Their impacts, sometimes not detectable until years or decades after exposure, include reduced disease resistance, diminished fertility and compromised intelligence and behavior.
Our Stolen Future tells the story of how endocrine disruption was discovered, how it works what it means, and how families can protect themselves and their communities, all in clear, simple language intended for a general audience.
"Could become the biggest scientific and public-relations bombshell to hit the chemical industry since Rachel L. Carson's 1962 classic, Silent Spring.
"Its subject is so important and its story so powerful that it deserves to be read by the widest possible audience."
New York Times Book Review
"Fascinating, provocative...a dramatic and important cautionary tale that will be the catalyst for environmentalism in the 21st century."
"Frightening...an important and compelling acount of modern scientific discovery that shatters the assumptions behind much of this country's environmental protection tradition. Should spark a firestorm of controversy."
San Francisco Chronicle
"A chilling account of a fascinating scientific discovery. All who are concerned with preserving the earth and the health of its children and grandchildren will find this book both important and rewarding."
