The 100 Year Lie!important;%20margin:0px%20!important;

In The Hundred-Year Lie: How to Protect Yourself from the Chemicals That Are Destroying Your Health, investigative journalist Randall Fitzgerald debunks the promise of "better living through chemistry" and explains "how food and medicine are destroying your health."

Previously plagued by illnesses caused by bacteria and viruses, modern medicine is now struggling to manage chronic illnesses caused by chemicals in the environment.

Inside this book you'll learn which common food additives interact synergistically to cause nerve damage (aspartame, MSG, and food coloring), why up to 99 percent of ingredients in personal products can be excluded from labels (trade secrecy laws), why we'll never know the health effects of most chemicals in combination (testing only the most common 1,000 chemicals in combinations of 3 would require 166 million experiments), and why phasing out dangerous toxins doesn't end the problem (damage done by chemical exposure decades ago can be passed on to future generations).

Fitzgerald writes, "merely by choosing a diet of pure foods and a lifestyle free of synthetics, we can detoxify ourselves and initiate the healing of many degenerative illnesses and diseases." Reading this book is a good place to start.
