FROM THE GULF WAR TO THE GULF OF MEXICO
AN INVESTIGATIVE REPORT
Ten years ago, Mann blew the lid off “TOXIC MOLD” with a series of cover stories and features in Time and USA Weekend magazines. Now he is back with the bigger picture, and it’s a frightening one. A leading authority on environmental concerns, Mann gives a behind-the-scenes look at this growing epidemic.
From his acclaimed Time exposé on the sickening of hundreds in the Southwest Airlines reservations center in San Antonio, Mann goes on to expose:
- The hundreds of thousands of veterans whose lives have been destroyed by Gulf War illness in the biggest military cover-up of all time.
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, acting on behalf of the insurance industry, turns a blind eye to infants dying in mold-infested inner city housing.
- Thousands of Gulf of Mexico cleanup workers denied critical protective equipment, for appearance purposes, while key government agencies look on with indifference.
- Wealthy homeowners poisoned in their own toxic mansions.
Mann has painstakingly documented their heart-breaking personal stories, along with medical testimony from renowned physicians and researchers who specialize in this new field of medicine and environmental disasters.
Part detective, part crusader, Arnold Mann has been writing about health and medicine for a national audience for 30 years. His cover stories, particularly those dealing with the growing threat of toxic mold in homes, schools and in the workplace, have made him one of the leading reporters in the field of environmental health. He is co-author with Dr. Keith Black of the critically acclaimed book, “Brain Surgeon: A Doctor’s Inspiring Encounters with Mortality and Miracles,” nominated for the NAACP Image Award for Best Nonfiction Book, 2010. He has also worked as a consultant to the National Institutes of Health, overseeing publication of the National Cancer Institute’s annual Progress Report to Congress.
In “They’re Poisoning Us”, Mann tells a riveting story of concealment, confusion and insidiously immoral behavior on the part of industry and governmental agencies. He also reveals exciting new scientific developments that are finally producing new treatments for the environmentally disabled.
This book is a must-read for anyone concerned about their health in our increasingly “chemicalized” world. No one is immune. Release date is set for February 2011 by 34th Street Press.
“This is a compelling book – a real page-turner. It covers the lack of research, the lack of government support, physician ignorance and/or duplicity, and industry’s indifference and outright lies to the victims of toxic exposures.” – Cynthia Wilson, Executive Director, Chemical Injury Information Network.
“This book truthfully is the only book I have ever begun to read and couldn’t put down until I was finished. The quality of writing and subject matter – It’s a Masterpiece!” – David Lewis, Ph.D., former Senior EPA Research Microbiologist.
“Arnold Mann’s reporting on environmental toxins and resulting illnesses has enabled patients and doctors to look beyond the obvious for answers to mysterious symptoms. His earlier reporting saved lives; this book will save countless more.” – Melinda Ballard, Policyholders of America.
