Chemical Conundrum [electronic resource]

TVE International
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Consider the following irony: that we live twice as long as our ancient ancestors did, even though our bodies contain all manner of synthetic and sometimes toxic substances-an unpleasant requirement of life in our modern age. This program explores the health impact, wide variety, and alarming ubiquity of manufactured chemicals. Viewers will see how communities around the world-including Inuit seal hunters, Asian and African farmers, and residents of an industrial town in the United States-address the pervasiveness of molecular compounds found in pesticides, plastics, and other products. The benefits of these chemicals are weighed against their dangers.
