Ever wonder about chemicals in your day-to-day life?
What’s in the air I breathe? The water I drink? The food I eat? Even the things I put on my skin?
Ed Brown wondered these same things after his wife suffered two miscarriages (they now have two beautiful children). But instead of just wondering, he traveled around the country with his video camera to interview top minds in the fields of science, advocacy and law and learned there are unacceptable levels of chemicals in so many things. Including our bodies.
Approximately 200 synthetic industrial chemicals interact with our cells every single day.
Ed’s documentary dissects the ways chemicals saturate our homes and environment amid a backdrop of a glaring lack of regulation. It chronicles the results of the post-WWII chemical boom and details common avenues of exposure, from food to fluoride to toxic sludge.
Some Unacceptable Facts from the film:
- Autism now affects one in 50 children.
- Cancer is the leading cause of death (after accidents) in children younger than 15 years in the United States.
- In the last twenty years, the rates of asthma, allergies and ADHD are on the rise: 400% increase in allergies, 300% increase in asthma, 400% increase in ADHD
- $2.6 Trillion of the GDP is spent on treating disease every year.
Ed is touring the country this summer, with a bicoastal premiere June 12 at the ArcLight Hollywood in California and at the Avon Theatre in Stamford, Connecticut. He’ll be joined in Hollywood by Mariel Hemingway, Gary Hirschberg, Christopher Gavigan and other passionate environmentalists to inspire others to take action.
This film is a huge eye-opener! Once a parent sees this, they thankfully won’t ever approach their child’s health & future the same way ever again!” ~ Jessica Capshaw Gavigan, actress, MCAF Leadership Circle
