REVIEWS

"Thank you for your wonderful, easy to read book, "Our Chemical Lives And The Hijacking of Our DNA."  It has been my "Bible" into turning customers GREEN.  Thanks again.  

Faith is not about everything turning out OK; Faith is about being OK no matter how things turn out.

Your book was the inspiration for me developing the first EPA dFe certified fragrance and dye-free automotive cleaning line.  It may be listed under Detail Devils Green Clean Automotive."

"You know what you wrote about is my field of expertise. Your book is a masterpiece! The way you wrote it, the information is so accessible. The research is phenomenal. I think your book stands among the several best texts I have read on this subject and, in my opinion, has an edge in readability.”

Harold Buttram, M.D. 


Mayer Eisenstein, MD, JD, MPH during an August 22, 2010 webinar while talking about Catherine’s book Our Chemical Lives… said, “It’s an absolutely awesome book…”



"You have done a great job. Toxicology these days is encyclopedic and your summary contains most of the salient stuff, in a very readable way." 


Michael Sichel, DO, ND, PhD, Chittaway Bay, NSW, Australia.

 


“I felt you took a difficult and complicated chemical and biological issue and made it available to ‘Joe Public’.  Overall I was impressed with your work.  The ONE main take away message I came away with was just how many chemicals are in the products we use daily AND their potential effects on our DNA and nervous system.

"There is a seminal book that has just been published called, “Our Chemical Lives And The Hijacking Of Our DNA,” by Catherine J. Frompovich.  This book is likely the most researched book of its kind describing the numerous chemicals in our household products, toiletries, cosmetics, and water to name a few.  There are 599 additives in cigarettes alone.  Everyone should have this information to protect yourself and your family.”

Robert E. Jenkins, D.C. 


"I enjoyed your writing style.  You were able to present a great deal of technical information yet at the same time you were able to engage the reader to question and think about the given topic at hand.  Your humor was great.  The information appears to be well documented and you provide a wealth of resources for the reader to explore for more information.  I would definitely purchase this book as well as recommend it to my patients and friends."

William Z. Polsky, D.C. 


“I think it is a blockbuster!  It is aimed at consumers, but thoroughly documented which professionals will require and appreciate.  There are ‘belly laughs’ throughout many of its pages.”

Laraine C. Abbey, R.N., C.N.S.  


"Thank you for sending me your book. ...I have just finished reading it, and it is really wonderful.   As you can imagine, I see and receive dozens of books on this topic, and yours really stands apart.   I'm so glad you wrote this."

Anne C. Steinemann, Ph.D., Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Public Affairs  (University of Washington)


"Our Chemical Lives and the Hijacking of our DNA' is an important "wake up call' about the current and future state of our toxic environment and what will happen if important changes are not made. Not only is it highly educational, the attention to detail makes the book a handy health resource tool. It is highly recommended to not just mass readers, but also to politicians, manufacturing industry officials, and health professionals."

Book reviewed on Energy Times web site, March 18, 2010

From that review:...Frompovich not only has a knack for making the heavy science involved in Our Chemical Lives comprehensible to the average reader, but also lightens what could be a depressing need with a basically optimistic outlook.  I believe a transformation can take place if we want it to," she says.  For the entire review, please see

Book Ties Toxic Chemicals To Rising Healthcare Costs

Our Chemical Lives And The Hijacking Of Our DNA
A Probe Into What’s Probably Making Us Sick

From the Industrial revolution and onward, the world has become an environment that is overflowing with dangerous toxins. Mass manufacturing has resulted in thousands of chemical pollutants being released in the atmosphere, water, and soil. As well, there has been a widespread increase of chemicals being added to almost every type of food and retail product.  With this overwhelming chemical exposure, there has been an increase in research and studies showing the life threatening impacts on our health and well being. In her book, Our Chemical Lives And The Hijacking Of Our DNA, author Catherine J Frompovich delves into the effects of a chemical laden world on the body at a cellular level.

Our Chemical Lives And The Hijacking Of Our DNA is an important “wake up call’ about the current and future state of our toxic environment and what will happen if important changes are not made. Not only is it highly educational, the attention to detail makes the book a handy health resource tool. It is highly recommended to not just mass readers, but also to politicians, manufacturing industry officials, and health professionals.
