Are you interested in learning about the possible causes of early puberty/breast-budding? The chemicals we essentially cannot avoid that will probably give us cancer? The first breast implant patient? Evolutionary theory about why women lactate and have breasts? Chemicals leaching into breast milk? If so, then this is the book for you.

Much of it was totally fascinating, and I'm glad I read it, but frankly the environmental/ecological data freaked me out. If anything, that is a reason to read this book, but I need to find some other sources with practical tips about how to lessen exposure to risky chemicals. In this format, it was difficult to digest.
