Unacceptable Levels examines the impact of the chemical revolution of the 1940’s on our present day environment, the health of our selves and our children. Weaving the testimonies of experts in science, advocacy and law into a compelling narrative, filmmaker Ed Brown presents us with the story of how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are, and of where, if we’re not vigilant, it may take us.

Theories about the causes of increasing global disease rates abound, yet the issues are complex and often muddied by the maneuvering of political and corporate interests. Our planet is exposed to more than 80,000 industrial chemicals on a daily basis, many of them interacting negatively with our bodies and even affecting our unborn children!

Unacceptable Levels opens the door to conversations about the chemical burden carried by our bodies and our planet, and gives essential information to make changes for a healthier future. The conversation begins with this movie and the Q & A afterward.

Ticket reservations must meet the “threshold” number for this important event to happen. Please make your ticket reservations today at http://www.tugg.com/events/6958

Together, we can create a healthier world and a healthier future!

    Bee colony collapse came up in the discussion. Take action against Lowes' and Home Depot by signing petition.

    Love food? Love flowers? Then we need your help to deliver a “Give Bees Some Love” Valentine’s Day card to your local Home Depot and Lowe’s Stores!

    A new study co-authored by the Friends of the Earth and Pesticide Research Institute found that seven out of 13 samples of garden plants purchased at top retailers in Washington D.C., the San Francisco Bay Area and Minneapolis contain neurotoxic pesticides known as neonicotinoids. Neonics, made by Bayer CropScience and Syngenta, are the fastest-growing class of synthetic pesticides. They’re also linked to the mass die-off of honeybees. Please sign up to deliver a Valentine asking your local Home Depot and Lowe’s stores to “show bees some love” and stop selling bee-killing pesticides and garden plants pre-treated with these pesticides!

    Dow Chemical, the company that brought us Napalm and Agent Orange, is now in the food business and is pushing for approval of genetically engineered (GE) versions of corn and soybeans that are designed to survive repeated dousing with 2,4-D, half of the highly toxic chemical mixture Agent Orange.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
