Unacceptable Levels: A Closer Look at the Chemical Revolution Aftermath

BY ELIZABETH BORELLI

Unacceptable Levels

Every now and then a documentary so gripping comes along that you just have to share it.  Unacceptable Levels is one of those exceptional films, compelling in a way that also touches the heart, bringing a deeper understanding to the truths revealed here.  And we can use this information to make a difference in our own lives and in the lives of others, much more easily then you might think. It’s simply a matter of knowledge and choices.

Unacceptable Levels examines the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940s 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, Ed takes us along on his journey as he interviews top minds in the fields of science, advocacy, and law searching for answers. Weaving their stories into a compelling narrative, Brown presents us with a revealing look at how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are today, as he empowers us to harness the power of choice to enact change.

At present, film maker Ed Brown is touring the SF Bay area screening the documentary.  I was honored to be asked to join the post film panel discussion for the Santa Cruz showing.  If you’re in the Bay Area, I highly recommend seeing this documentary visionary Paul Hawken calls “ funny, clear and illuminating” at one of the venues below.  Or you can watch for it on NetFlix, but either way, for those of us concerned with the health effects of toxins, Unacceptable Levels is a must see!

Testimonials:

“Unacceptable Levels is a great documentary … about the myriad ways we are being exposed to toxins, poisons and allergens in our daily life. It is sweet, funny, clear, and illuminating.”

- Paul Hawken, best-selling author, founder of Smith & Hawken

“From the products we use, to the food we eat, to the air we breathe, Unacceptable Levels documents how prevalent toxic chemicals have become part of our lives.  Ed Brown uses the powerful connection of family to illustrate how broken our system has become, and why we must do something about it. Our children’s futures depend on it.”

– Gigi Lee Chang, CEO, Healthy Child Healthy World
