The Lens - Homo Toxicus

Each day, tons of chemicals are released into the environment, but do we really know how toxic they are or what their long-term effect is on living organisms? Some toxins are found in everyday objects or in agricultural pesticides used for food production. And they seem to be finding their way into our homes.

When a Montreal filmmaker has her blood tested she learns that there are 110 contaminants in her body. So she sets off to investigate the connection between those toxic substances and rising health issues in our society, such as cancer, allergies and male infertility.

The film is directed and produced by Carole Poliquin (Productions ISCA, Montreal).
