Still image from Chemical Conundrum

Consider the following: humans live twice as long as their ancient ancestors did even though their bodies contain different types of synthetic and sometimes toxic substances. This is an unpleasant part of life in the modern age. Explores the health impact, wide variety, and alarming ubiquity of manufactured chemicals. Shows 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. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) expanded description and (2) English subtitles in a black box.
