"Slow Death by Rubber Duck," is written by Rick Smith and Bruce Lourie and it details the toxins found in our homes, how they make their way inside our bodies and the very real impact they have on our health.

The book's been reviewed recently in the Washington Post, by O, The Oprah Magazine and the book's authors were recently profiled on Dr. Oz.

The authors ran toxic chemical experiments on themselves! Say what? Wow, that is brave! Using everyday household items, and the book chronicles the shocking results.
