Soundings: Jane Hightower: Mercury in Our Fish and Oceans
As a doctor, Jane Hightower saw numerous patients with inexplicable ailments and little in common except a healthy appetite for certain fish. Hightower's quest for answers led her to mercury, and that opened its own Pandora's Box of thorny questions. Hightower, author of Diagnosis: Mercury, retraces her investigation into the modern prevalence of mercury poisoning, revealing how political calculations, dubious studies, and industry lobbyists endanger our health. Presented as part of the Soundings from Island Press series by Town Hall and Island Press through the Town Hall Center for Civic Life, in association with IslandWood and Elliott Bay Book Company.
