Streaming Video - 2014

Can the phenomenon of today's allergy explosion be rationally explained? This film highlights environmental causes and the protection strategies we have at our disposal. It debunks the classical theory that attributes allergies to a natural flaw in our immune system and sheds light on industry's role in the spread of this modern scourge. Calling to attention the lack of testing on the effects of pesticides and antibiotics before putting them on the market, this film challenges the notion of "background doses" and exposes dubious practices of the pharmaceutical laboratories and agri-food corporations; day by day, chemicals are weakening our immune systems.
