Living Downstream: A Must See Documentary   2 comments

Sandra Steingraber was born in Pekin, Illinois. At the age of 20, she was diagnosed with bladder cancer. She defeated her diagnosis, and went on to become a biologist and environmental activist. Sandra’s research focused on the link between environmental contaminants, such as PCBs and atrazine, and human health. Her life’s work culminated in a book, titled Living Downstream: A Scientist’s Personal Investigation of Cancer and the Environment . In 2009, a feature-length documentary based on this book was produced. This film is part personal exploration, and part scientific research. It has received outstanding reviews, and Sandra is continuing her mission to inform the world about the devastating impact we’re having on our environment. Watch the trailer below:
