If you made a list of the risks and dangers you face, it might include terrorist attacks, plane crashes, smoking, and driving. But does it include your coffee mug, toothpaste, shaving cream, or lipstick? After watching this thoughtful and disturbing documentary, it will. Since the rise of chemical usage began, certain illnesses started to spike as well. Breast cancer, autism, and infertility all rose dramatically as new chemicals made their way into virtually every product touching our lives—with few, if any, regulations or requirements to prove safety. With public awareness grew a powerful web of lobbyists and PR firms whose job is to deflect blame and responsibility from a hugely profitable industrial base. (If the “4 Dog Defense” doesn't boil your blood, nothing will.) Following powerful individual cases and using testimony from medical professionals and politicians, THE HUMAN EXPERIMENT will both alert you to dangers and show you what you can do about them. This is a film that much of Corporate America does not want you to see. We do. —C.R.
