I realized while I was about halfway through this book that I've read it before. Very informative about the clustering of disease due to environmental impact. ( )

Subtitle: Bodies Gone Haywire In A World Out of Balance and the Cutting Edge Science that Promises Hope. A useful look at some autoimmune clusters, but large chunks of the book are devoted to individual stories that didn't add much value to my autoimmune research. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743277759, Hardcover)

From the foreword by Dr. Douglas Kerr, Director, Johns Hopkins Transverse Myelitis Center

"The Autoimmune Epidemic by Donna Jackson Nakazawa is an astounding book....It is the kind of book that will rivet you and scare you. It will make you angry. It will amaze you with the courage of some of the people described in the book...The Autoimmune Epidemic is every bit as compelling as Upton Sinclair's The Jungle...It is also every bit as necessary as An Inconvenient Truth....

You will leave this book with no reservations about the veracity of the conclusions: put simply, there is no doubt that autoimmune diseases are on the rise and increasing environmental exposures of toxins and chemicals is fueling this rise. The research is sound. The conclusions unassailable....

Reading The Autoimmune Epidemic is a necessary first step. Reading The Autoimmune Epidemic is a life-altering event. It needs to be."
