The Chemical Kids

Today the average European has at least 500 detectable chemicals in his body that were not present in the organs of his great grandparents in the twenties.

The Chemical Kids takes us around the world, spotlighting the chemical heritage we are leaving children – both the born and unborn.

We follow the trail of chemicals the last few generations have unleashed – and we track down the researchers who are studying the effects. A task that because of its enormity has left them way behind in their work already.
