I usually approach lay writing about “detoxifying” with skepticism, expecting alarmist rhetoric. Sophia’s book, however, is just the opposite. It is fact-based, filled with common sense, and completely readable!

I absolutely recommend her work as a starting place for anyone trying to get healthy by getting a handle on the lifestyle and environmental factors that we can control in our busy lives.

I am truly impressed with Sophia Gushée's book. It is an unbelievable resource. In our quest for healthier lives through preventative medicine with diet and exercise, we have forgotten the potential hazards lurking in common products all around us. This well researched and scholarly work is one that I know I will turn to often in my clinical practice.

Sophia Ruan Gushée has provided a great and useful book. It is a very readable but very scientifically accurate account of toxins in common products we all use almost every day, with appropriate information on how we can reduce our exposures to ourselves and especially to our children. The chemicals of concern are identified and their presence in everything from shampoos to foods to furniture is reported, including ways by which one can avoid excessive exposure.
