About the Film
Unacceptable Levels chronicles the impact of chemicals in our lives.  Our water, food, bodies and environments--all are touched by  industrial chemicals.  What does this mean for us?  Filmmaker and father Ed Brown, armed with a camera, a passion, and a sense of humor, set off to uncover the facts about our chemical world, and share them with everyone.  The result is Unacceptable Levels, a touching and enlightening documentary.  Narrated by Brown and created in consultation with over forty experts, it examines seemingly disparate aspects of life today to present the big picture .  No matter what you already know about chemicals, Unacceptable Levels will show you something you haven't seen, but need to know.
