Overview:

ContamiNation: My Quest to Survive in a Toxic World : A few years ago, journalist McKay Jenkins had a tumour removed from his abdomen. At the hospital, he was asked a lot of odd questions by two researchers: How much exposure had he had to toxic chemicals and other contaminants? Asbestos dust? Vinyl chlorine? Pesticides? Jenkins, a clean living kind of guy, suddenly realised he'd spent his life marinating in toxins, from his wall-to-wall carpeting, to his dryer sheets, to his drinking water. In ContamiNation, he exposes the toxins that are present in our everyday lives, and shows how we can avoid them.
