Diagnosis: Mercury: Money, Politics, and Poison (Google eBook)
In Diagnosis: Mercury, Dr. Hightower retraces her initial investigation into the modern prevalence of mercury poisoning, revealing how political calculations, dubious studies, and industry lobbyists endanger our health. Her tenacious inquiry sheds light on a system in which, too often, money trumps good science and responsible government. Exposing a threat that few recognize but that touches many, Diagnosis: Mercury should be required reading for everyone who cares about their health.
