HOMO TOXICUS to be shown Friday, May 4th
First Friday Films will be featuring Homo Toxicus on May 4th, 2012, 6:30pm at American Memorial Park Visitors Center.
Filmmaker Carole Poliquin investigates the remarkable amount of toxic chemicals that exist in our bodies with this documentary that will have viewers taking great caution while deciding what to put in their bodies. Every day, tons of chemicals are released into the environment, without ever knowing how toxic they are in the long term to the living organisms. Moreover: the majority of the 100,000 molecules developed since the World War II, which are used in daily products, have never been tested. Some of them found their way into our bodies and into fetuses. Up to 247 toxic substances have been found in new-borns. We are today bequeathing our toxic load to our children along with our DNA!
First Friday Films is a monthly film series brought to you through a partnership with the National Park Service and the Division of Environmental Quality (DEQ), with generous support from community groups and organizations such as the CNMI Coastal Resource Management Office with support from RC&D which is sponsoring this film. For planning purposes, the movie runs about 80 minutes long. As always, First Friday Films is free and open to the public.
