Over the past four decades, the prevalence of autism, asthma, ADHD, obesity, diabetes and birth defects has increased substantially among children throughout the world. Not coincidentally, more than 80,000 new chemicals have been developed and released into the global environment during this same period. Today the World Health Organisation attributes more than one third of all childhood deaths to environmental causes. This book offers an authoritative yet accessible question-and-answer guide to the 'silent spring' of threats in our collective backyard.
