In addition, the charts provide recommendations for the safest foods, toiletries, and everyday household purchases.
A rating chart by the authors of Diet for a Poisoned Planet and The Politics of Cancer includes thousands of brand-name listings for their flammable, allergen, irritant, carcinogenic, and other toxic properties.

Reviewer: A reader from Arlington, TX United States
This is an excellent guide to products that we use daily. You can find the safest alternatives and information about what ingredients are harmful. The only drawback is that it does not include ratings on the newest products on the market but you can use the other info about harmful ingredients as a guideline. If you are concerned about product safety this book is a must.
An excellent guide to safer products, January 22, 2002
Reviewer: A reader from Concord, MI USA
I have serious adverse reactions to the chemicals in many products, and need to avoid those that make me sick. Since most products do not list ingredients, there is no way of knowing what is actually in them, or if it may be a health hazard. This book lists the hazardous ingredients in many products, and also lists the ones that are safer. Great information for anyone who has health problems that are aggravated by various chemicals, as well as people who wish to avoid using harsh chemicals. I use the book quite often, in my search for safe products.
