by Sandra Steingraber
The first edition of Living Downstream—an exquisite blend of precise science
and engaging narrative—set a new standard for scientific writing. Poet, biologist,
and cancer survivor, Steingraber uses all three kinds of experience to investigate
the links between cancer and environmental toxins.
The updated science in this exciting new edition strengthens the case for banning
poisons now pervasive in our air, our food, and our bodies. Because synthetic chemicals
linked to cancer come mostly from petroleum and coal, Steingraber shows that investing
in green energy also helps prevent cancer. Saving the planet becomes a matter of
saving ourselves and an issue of human rights. A documentary film based on the book
will coincide with publication.
