In 1941 the FDA approved diethylstilbestrol use. In this gripping exploration, Nancy Langston shows how these chemicals have penetrated into every aspect of our bodies and ecosystems, yet the U.S. government has largely failed to regulate them and has skillfully manipulated scientific uncertainty to delay regulation. Personally affected by endocrine disruptors, Professor Langston argues that the FDA needs to institute proper regulation of these commonly produced synthetic chemicals.
