What's Toxic, What's Not

by Gary Ginsberg, Brian Toal

      Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives. - James Madison

No matter were you live in the world, chances are you are exposed to toxins that you never dreamed existed. Arming yourself with the knowledge to help protect yourself and your family is essential to your survival.

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it. - Margaret Fuller

What's Toxic, What's Not is a book every consumer should have readily available in their home. This informative book provides in-depth information that will show you how to protect your family against harmful chemicals.  The advice contained throughout the pages is written in simple language that anyone will be able to understand.

We have a hunger of the mind which asks for knowledge of all around us, and the more we gain, the more is our desire; the more we see, the more we are capable of seeing. - Maria Mitchell

What I found so unique about this book is that it provides information about toxic substances we could easily encounter in our own home or at work. As I read each chapter, I found that it was a very eye opening experience. 

I was brought up to believe that the only thing worth doing was to add to the sum of accurate information in the world. - Margaret Mead

Readers will be amazed at the wealth of knowledge contained throughout the pages of this book. I am fully convinced that there is someone out there who needs to read it in order to help save their life. Powerful words with such a dire meaning makes for a very fulfilling reading experience.

Knowing is not enough; we must apply! - Goethe
