Argues that we have failed to respond adequately to the nation's spiraling epidemics, from the rise in chronic illness to the crime rate. Offers evidence that our bad nutrition, our reliance on stimulants, our drug and alcohol abuse, our ruined air and water not only have undermined personal health but also have contributed to the destruction of the social fabric. Having rendered ourselves toxic and malnourished, we have witnessed not only high infant mortality rates but illiteracy, learning disabilities, and a tide of persistent diseases and syndromes that modern technology is unable to stem. Based upon a ground-breaking ten-year study.
