About the Film:
Directed by Ed Brown. USA. 2013. 76 min.
Today more than 80,000 chemicals are in our system of commerce and, shockingly, there are few limitations on their use. On average, all of us have more than 232 industrial chemicals floating around in our bodies, and research is showing that this is a huge reason for concern. There is a growing consciousness in research facilities across the globe, as billions of dollars are poured into research, testing, drug creation and new agencies to combat disease, but our understanding of the issue has remained entrenched in treatment. This film suggests that prevention is the one part of the equation that is much simpler, inexpensive, and can be demonstrative in helping people to live longer, happier lives. Unacceptable Levels delves into this issue from 12 distinct angles, to provide audiences with information that they may not be aware of, and significant change must be taken. From health care to regulations, the film explores every angle of this issue to provide people with the big picture so they can make up their own minds to determine what is acceptable in their own lives.
