Our children are sicker; cancer, obesity, allergies and mental health issues are on the rise in adults; and, frighteningly, we may be less intelligent than previous generations. In the meantime chemicals are being pumped into every part of our environment – the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the water we drink and the air we breathe. Author Julian Cribb says our poisoned planet is a bigger issue than climate change, and it’s something we all need to take urgent action on.
In his new book, Poisoned Planet, Julian Cribb says we have the tools to clean it up and create a healthier, safer future for us all.
