What’s Gotten Into Us?

What’s Gotten Into Us?

  McKay Jenkins, author and professor of English and Director of Journalism at the University of Delaware focused on the connections between the chemicals we are exposed to and health.

Jenkins discussed how synthetic chemicals, such as BPA, that are used in common products make their way into our bodies. In his book, What’s Gotten Into Us, he wrote a lot about Maine's "Body of Evidence" study in which 13 Maine people were tested for dozens of chemicals used in common products.

This talk was recorded January 11, 2012 at Portland Public Library.
