Poisoned for Profit

How Toxins Are Making Our Children Chronically Ill
With new information on what we can do

by Philip Shabecoff, Alice Shabecoff


"Powerful reporting backing powerful conclusions--it will make those of us with kids shudder, but hopefully it will also make us get out of our chairs and engage in the politics necessary to protect the future."

Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature and Deep Economy

"Brilliant. . . Every parent in America owes a debt of gratitude to Philip and Alice Shabecoff. Generation Sick should be high on the president's reading list."

Barry Commoner, senior scientist and emeritus director, Center for Biology of Natural Systems, Queens College

"A sober and sobering account by two deeply experienced journalists. . . This is essential reading for all who care about children, families, and America's future."

Philip J. Landrigan, MD, MS, professor and chair, Department of Community and Preventative Medicine, professor of pediatrics, and director, Children's Environmental Health Center, Mount Sinai School of Medicine

"Painstakingly researched and incontrovertible... This should become an elemental text for all of us who wish to protect ourselves, and should be required reading for those who claim to be public servants."

Peter Matthiessen, author of The Snow Leopard

"Into an arena filled with confusing claims and counterclaims, Philip and Alice Shabecoff have now brought their remarkable journalistic skills, providing us with a clear-headed, accurate assessment of the toxic threat to America's children. Poisoned Profits is a highly readable indictment so powerful it may finally force action. We have needed this book; now at last we have it."

James Gustave Speth, author of The Bridge at the Edge of the World, and Dean, Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies
