I first shared information about filmmaker Ed Brown’s project, Unacceptable Levels, in April, when Ed first started spreading the news about his film. I was so excited that this film can spread the truth about the unregulated chemicals being used in our daily lives. A few facts which Unacceptable Levels reveals:
- Before you walked out your front door this morning, you likely ingested, absorbed, or inhaled more than 150 unique synthetic chemicals.
- Americans assume that chemicals used to make ordinary products are tested for safety — but they are not. This film makes it impossible for corporations and the chemical industry to hide behind the numbers.
- Health care costs in the United States are over $2 trillion, and we are on what has been described as a “toxic treadmill.”
- Globally, disease rates are on the rise, and theories abound to address the causes—yet the issues are complex and often muddied by the maneuvering of political and corporate interests.
“Unacceptable Levels explores these issues through the eyes of a father and his personal journey, as he attempts to bring these issues to light for all parents. The primary goal? To see if we can prevent disease before it happens” (UnacceptableLevels.com).
Take a look at the trailer to preview this important work:
