Do you like horror movies? Do you get a kick out of being too scared to piss by yourself for a week? You do? Well, then, weve got the book for you. Only this time, its not mythical creatures or monsters that will haunt you, but rather the invisible chemicals you absorb every day. Former Arizona Republic staff writer Nena Baker exposes the little beasts in her new book, The Body Toxic: How the Hazardous Chemistry of Everyday Things Threatens Our Health and Well-Being. She covers everything from bisphenol A in beverage containers to perfluorinated chemicals in food wrappers to every other unpronounceable thing that sticks to your body, infects your cells, and makes you sick.
