In this compelling book, Steingraber (Environmental Studies and Science, Ithaca College) uses her experience as a poet, a biologist, and a cancer survivor to lay out a persuasive case for the linkage between cancer and environmental toxins. Weaving scientific investigation with her own family's history, she shows how the increased incidence of cancer in the rural areas of her native Illinois (and in similar communities nationwide) has gone hand-in-hand with increased levels of human-caused poisons in the environment. Steingraber suggests that reducing our dependence on coal and petroleum not only makes sense from a green-energy perspective, but it would also reduce the amount of environmental toxins in our environment.
