New Documentary ‘The Human Experiment’ Seeks the Truth Behind Recent Rise in Chemical Exposure

New Documentary 'The Human Experiment' Seeks the Truth Behind Recent Rise in Chemical Exposure

In recent years we’ve seen natural disasters, wars, financial crises, and an upswing in our exposure to “everyday chemicals” that could be wreaking havoc on our bodies. In this last case, however, the outrage is still bubbling under the surface.

“The Human Experiment” is a documentary produced and narrated by Sean Penn, that “lifts the veil on the shocking reality that thousands of untested chemicals are in our everyday products, our homes and inside of us.”

It follows the story of everyday people whose lives have been impacted by foreign chemicals: a mother whose son died of a rare cancer and who is battling breast cancer herself and businessmen and teens who are all trying to take down the chemical giants.

According to the documentary’s Vimeo page, “This year, legislation was introduced that would update our country’s chemicals policy, the oldest environmental law in the U.S. to have never been reformed.”

The question that remains is, will anything be done to change this? Or will it be too late?

Take a look at the preview, and look for the full film in 2014. The website provides helpful tips on how to start living chemical-free, as do posts from the documentary’s Facebook page. Start arming yourselves with knowledge and join the movement.

untested hmm hope that does not mean on animal being...too much atrocities on the voiceless already. To have to be tested = toxic anyway. Why not promote more boycotts, Natural products and sensible lifestyles. !
