About this product
- DescriptionOne morning in 2000, Dr. Jane Hightower walked into her surgery to find a patient with disturbing symptoms she couldn't explain. The woman was nauseated, tired, and had difficulty concentrating, but a litany of tests revealed apparent cause. She was t alone. Dr. Hightower saw numerous patients with similar, inexplicable ailments, and eventually learned that there were many more incidents around the world. They had little in common - except a healthy appetite for certain fish. In Diagsis: Mercury , Dr. Hightower retraces her investigation into the modern prevalence of mercury poisoning, revealing how political calculations, dubious studies, and industry lobbyists endanger our health. While mercury is a naturally occurring element, she learns there's much that is unnatural about this poison's prevalence in our seafood.
- Author BiographyJane M. Hightower, M.D., works as an internal medicine physician in San Francisco, California. She published a landmark study that brought the issue of mercury in seafood to international attention. She continues to publish scientific papers and give lectures on the subject.
