http://slowdeathbyrubberduck.com/USA/- Great book!
“[Slow Death by Rubber Duck] isn't just alarmist environmental shock and awe. It's a thoughtful look at how pollution has shifted over the years from something tangible and transparent (industrial pollutants as the cause of acid rain) to something abstract and nuanced (BPA's links to breast cancer). The challenges this change presents, as many of the world's top scientists explain in these pages, should be of serious concern to us all."

Interview with Meryl Streep:
Beyond Acting: Meryl Streep, Activist Mom
By Wendy Gordon
WG: I remember you once saying that consumers need to be like chemists or toxicologists when they go shopping. What did you mean by that?
MS: I was being facetious to make a point. There are so many thousands of chemicals used to make and that are in our everyday products. Most of these have not been adequately tested for their effects on health. That's what I meant. If I were a young mother now, had an infant, and trying to figure out what nipple to put on a bottle, I would be reading all these things, finding out what BPA is, I'd be reading about endocrine mimickers and reading all those things. I do lament the fact that I didn't know anything about the problems with plastics when my oldest was born. I have such a wide range of kids; my oldest is 12 years older than the youngest. When Henry was little I was throwing these bottles in the microwaves, the way we all were. I don't think you ever stop being worried. So I did all those things, and then stopped by the time the last one came along. I think I weened her from the breast to the cup pretty much and she didn't really have a lot of bottles. But she had those plastic suckies, the pacifiers, with the phthalates.
