Summary:
This book reveals the hidden health dangers in many of the seemingly innocent products we encounter every day--a tube of glue in a kitchen drawer, a bottle of bleach in the laundry room, a rayon scarf on a closet shelf, a brass knob on the front door, a wood plank on an outdoor deck.

Abstract:

This book reveals the hidden health dangers in many of the seemingly innocent products we encounter every day--a tube of glue in a kitchen drawer, a bottle of bleach in the laundry room, a rayon scarf on a closet shelf, a brass knob on the front door, a wood plank on an outdoor deck. A compelling exposé, written by a physician with extensive experience in public health and illustrated with disturbing case histories, this is a meticulously documented account of injury and illness across different time periods, places, and technologies. It presents a picture of how ordinary manufacturing processes and consumer marketing expose workers and the general public alike to toxic hazards. Among the surprisingly common hazards discussed: glue and rubber cement; chlorine bleach; rayon and other synthetic textiles; welding and other metal fumes; wood preservatives; gasoline additives.--From publisher description.
