AbstractThis book explores the pollution-related costs in terms of money and lives in the United States, ad discusses how the government has failed to protect its citizens from the ill effects industrial and agricultural toxins. She explores how politicians, campaign contributers, and lobbyists, and their power over advertising,the media, and public relations, have conspired to cover up the widening human and environmental costs of this pollution. She ends by calling for a new democratic revolution and outlines ways in which citizens can help contribute to and support reforms built upon recommendations from the American Public Health Association.
