The PBS show NOW is turning its news magazine prowess toward a topic near and dear to author Mark Schapiro’s own journalistic prodding—phtalates. What are those you ask? Nasty, for sure, and while they make toys and other fun little plastic gizmos fun and pliable, they also do a number on the chemistry of your own body (including causing infertility in males).

And, NOW is also running a short excerpt from Mark’s book, Exposed: The Toxic Chemistry of Everyday Products and What’s at Stake for American Power, by clicking here.
Be sure to check your local PBS listings for when NOW will air in your town.
