A worldwide experience is in process and we are its guinea pigs

Synopsis

Everyday, an impressive amount of toxic substances is released in the environment, while we are still unsure of the long term effects these molecules have on humans and other living beings. Some of these substances seep into our body, so that while we transfer a genetic pool to our children, they also receive a toxic pool. In a serious and humorous breakthrough investigation, based on her own blood analysis, the director explores the link between these toxic substances and the increase of certain health problems like cancers, lower fertility and hyperactivity. The conclusions are shocking.
