Living Downstream: An Ecologist’s Personal Investigation of Cancer and the Environment

Poet, biologist, and cancer survivor, Sandra Steingraber investigate the links between cancer and environmental toxins.The updated science in this exciting new edition strengthens the case for banning poisons now pervasive in our air, our food, and our bodies. Because synthetic chemicals linked to cancer come mostly from petroleum and coal, Steingraber shows that investing in green energy also helps prevent cancer. Saving the planet becomes a matter of saving ourselves and an issue of human rights. A documentary film based on the book and bearing the same title was released in 2010. The book is available on Amazon or at your local bookseller and on the author’s website.
