By Randall Fitzgerald
The Hundred Year Lie presents a devastating expose of how chemicals in everyday products are ruining our health. In The Hundred-Year Lie, investigative journalist Randall Fitzgerald shatters dozens of myths being perpetuated by the chemical, pharmaceutical and processed food industries. Fitzgerald not only sheds light on the problems we face from the unprecedented chemical onslaught, he presents suggestions for what we can to do to turn the tide. Over the past one hundred years, we have been guinea pigs in a vast chemistry experiment that uses our bodies, our health, and our good will to test the proposition that modern science can improve upon nature.
Find out why you would never be FDA-approved and why humans are becoming one of the most polluted species on the planet:
• The average American now carries a “body burden” of 700 or more synthetic chemicals,
including Teflon, plastics, and dozens of pesticides.
• A 2005 study of lactating women in eighteen US states found perchlorate (a toxic
component of rocket fuel) in practically every mother’s breast milk.
• Musk fragrances used in detergents and air fresheners are not filtered out by our
current water treatment facilities, ending up in our drinking water.
• The artificial sweetener aspartame, an ingredient in 1,200 food products from diet
drinks to chewing gum, has been linked to eighty-eight toxic symptoms.
