Originally published in 1962, Our Synthetic Environment explores the negative effects that chemicals and other toxins in the environment have on human health. From the degradation of our food and soil due to industrial agricultural methods, to how pollution and radiation are the causes of illnesses like cancer, this book was visionary in its anticipation of many of the ecological problems our planet currently faces. Written by one of the leading eco-thinkers of the twentieth century, Our Synthetic Environment is as vital a read today as it was when it was first published. This new edition of Our Synthetic Environment features an introduction by Bill McKibben.
