About this book

Every day, chemicals trespass into our bodies from water, air, food, and the consumer products present in our homes and workplaces. As public trust in regulatory regimes wanes, evidence of the long-term health risks associated with exposure to toxic chemicals increases. Our Chemical Selves is an interdisciplinary volume covering the science, law, and policy related to adverse health effects associated with everyday exposures to toxic substances. Offering a critical, feminist look at the ways in which conditions for health disparities are produced, this timely book is a valuable resource for policy makers, scholars, advocates, and citizens concerned about environmental and occupational health issues.
