Unacceptable Levels Trailer
Unacceptable Levels examines the results of the chemical revolution through the eyes of affable filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. To create this debut documentary, one man and his camera traveled extensively to find and interview top minds in the fields of science, advocacy and law. Weaving their testimonies into a compelling narrative, Brown presents us with the story of how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are, and where, if we’re not vigilant, it may take us.

Is This Toxic Chemical In Your Shampoo? Have you been told that your shampoo is made from natural ingredients? Coconuts for example? The problem is that it may have started off as a coconut, but through chemical processing, ended up as a toxic chemical that’s now penetrating your scalp or skin every day. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) is a harsh detergent used as a foaming agent and is commonly found in shampoos, soaps, toothpastes, skin cleansers and many other cosmetics. This toxic chemical can cause tissue damage that can result in liver, brain, heart and lung damage. It can also damage the eyes, (particularly in children), cause gum disease, hair loss, eczema and can break down the immune system. It’s so called “milder” cousin, Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLES), may contain 1,4 Dioxane which is a potent carcinogen. Laboratory studies have shown that 1,4 Dioxane is associated with brain, breast, skin and lung cancer as well as liver and kidney damage. Why do they use these chemicals when they are so damaging to our health? ……….because they are cheap and they can! The cosmetic industry is self-regulated!
