"Scrupulously researched and sourced with thorough chapter notes, Toxin Toxout is remarkable both for its content and appealing narrative voice. Simply put, this is a book no one in the industrialized world has the luxury of ignoring." --Booklist, starred review

"A useful warning against embarking on detoxification without medical supervision." --Kirkus

"We all owe a debt of gratitude to Bruce Lourie and Rick Smith for slowly poisoning themselves for our benefit. And perhaps even more, for figuring out how to unpoison themselves. This is a fascinating book that has made me change my daily routines." --A.J. Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author of Drop Dead Healthy, My Life as an Experiment and The Know-It-All

"Ruthlessly probing and logical, Bruce Lourie and Rick Smith take the reader on a whirlwind tour of the myriad toxins that we encounter in cosmetics, water, paints, electromagnetic devices--all the things that cross our paths as we just live our lives. If you've ever wondered whether the shampoo you use might contribute to cancer risk, or whether there was any merit to all those 'detox' program ads you see, then this book will help you understand the real story. These authors have created a truly indispensable and enlightening guide to living in the twenty-first century." --William Davis, MD, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health and The Wheat Belly Cookbook

"Toxin Toxout admirably demonstrates how important our everyday product choices are--from the food we buy to the cars we choose to drive. I truly believe that you cannot achieve hormonal balance without reducing your toxin exposure and improving your internal detoxification systems. Toxin Toxout provides us with a much-needed guide on how to live--and maintain--a toxin-free lifestyle." --Dr. Natasha Turner, author of The Hormone Diet and The Supercharged Hormone Diet
