Slow Death by Rubber Duck: How the Toxic Chemistry of Everyday Life Affects Our Health, by Rick Smith and Bruce Lourie

This is a really scary book about the toxins we come into contact with everyday in our domestic and suburban environments, written by two Canadian environmentalists. The authors ran tests on themselves, exposing their bodies to the types of toxins we find in everyday articles we use. Hence they'd spray themselves with deoderants etc. then test themselves afterwards for toxins.

The results scared me, and made me think twice about a lot of the things I use in my daily life.
