Ten years ago, investigative reporter Arnold Mann blew the lid off "Toxic Mold" with a series of cover stories and features in Time and USA Weekend Magazines. Now he's back with the big picture. In his new book, "They're Poisoning Us-From the Gulf War to the Gulf of Mexico," Mann draws our attention to a global health crisis of exponential proportions, a toxic plague that has consumed the lives of tens of millions of Americans, rendering millions housebound. In "They're Poisoning Us " Mann reveals the ugly truths about cover-ups, lies and deceptions by major corporations and government agencies, even medical organizations. From his Time expos on the sickening of hundreds in the mold-infested environs of Southwest Airlines' reservations center in San Antonio, Mann goes on to expose: *The hundreds of thousands of veterans whose lives have been destroyed by Gulf War illness in the biggest cover-up in American military history. *The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention turning a blind eye to infants dying in mold-infested inner city housing. *Thousands of Gulf of Mexico oil spill cleanup workers denied critical protective equipment, for appearance purposes, while key government agencies look on with indifference. *Wealthy homeowners poisoned in their own toxic mansions. Mann has painstakingly documented their heart-breaking personal stories, along with medical testimony from renowned physicians and researchers who specialize in this new field of environmental medicine. In "They're Poisoning Us," Mann tells a riveting story of concealment, confusion and insidiously immoral behavior on the part of industry and governmental agencies. He also reveals exciting new scientific developments that are finally producing new treatments for the chemically disabled. This book is a must-read for anyone concerned about their health in our increasingly "chemicalized" world. "This book truthfully is the only book I have ever begun to read and couldn't put down until I was finished. The quality of writing and subject matter - it's a Masterpiece " - David Lewis, Ph.D., former senior EPA Research Microbiologist. "Arnold Mann's reporting on environmental toxins and resulting illnesses has enabled patients and doctors to look beyond the obvious for answers to mysterious symptoms. His earlier reporting saved lives; this book will save countless more." - Melinda Ballard, Policyholders of America. "This is a compelling book - a real page-turner. It covers the lack of research, the lack of government support, physician ignorance and/or duplicity, and industry's indifference and outright lies to the victims of toxic exposures" - Cynthia Wilson, Executive Director, Chemical Injury Information Network.
