Whether we like it or not, toxins surround us - from our food, our household and body products, to our children’s toys, bedding, and the houses we live in - invisible toxins are everywhere.
In a new documentary My Toxic Baby, award-winning filmmaker, Min Sook Lee seeks to find affordable answers to the question: Are there alternatives to the toxic wasteland we’ve created for ourselves? “My Toxic Baby is a very personal, sometimes funny and occasionally sad look at a current issue in our times”. Lee says.
More than just a film about toxins in baby products, My Toxic Baby reveals how much we consume and waste. Looking at alternatives, Lee discovers that many of the ‘new’ theories are actually age-old practices humans are re-connecting with from diapering and nursing to food concerns.
Lee unexpectedly discovers that her own home is above normal levels for certain toxins like PCB’s and lead. Shocked, she decides to get herself and her young daughter tested for chemical substances - with disappointing results.
My Toxic Baby is a potent and inspiring film for everyone. Whether you care about the environment, the sustainability of our planet, are a parent or simply curious and disbelieve in chemical exposure in everyday items, My Toxic Baby will open your eyes to the toxic world around you.
